Flakeboard is to install its third new melamine press at its Duraflake particleboard plant located in Albany, Oregon.

This press installation, scheduled for first quarter 2010 start-up, is the final stage of a melamine expansion plan that began with the purchase of three new presses in 2007.

This final installation will serve the western regions of Canada and the US and supply those areas with melamine surfaced Duraflake and Premier products from both the Albany particleboard and Eugene MDF plants, respectively.
