Forex makes the first board at new OSB mill

16.05.2018 − 

Canadian Forex Amos has commissioned a new OSB mill at its Amos, Quebec headquarters. The production line, which is designed to have an annual capacity of 410,000 m³ using a second-hand, 8x 24 ft 12-opening Dieffenbacher press, made its first board on 8 April.

Forex had made strands at the site for the first time at the end of September 2017 and sought to make the first OSB in November. The local newspaper L’Écho Abitibien reported that the entire line was not ready to operate until the middle of March.
