Louisiana-Pacific buys a siding supplier

04.07.2019 − 

Louisiana-Pacific has acquired Prefinished Staining Products (PSPI). Founded in 1999, this company laminates siding products made by a variety of manufacturers for local distributors and lumber yards. PSPI runs a fully automated laminating plant in Green Bay, which has a total area of 40,000 sqft or roughly 3,700 m². In the future, it will be part of Louisiana-Pacific’s Siding division.

According to a statement released on 3 June, the company feels that laminated siding products have considerable growth potential in the next five years. Until now, Louisiana-Pacific has only been active in Canada with its own solutions in this area. Its site in East River, Nova Scotia makes laminated hardwood sidings under the CanExel brand. According to Louisiana-Pacific, the mill is designed to make 55 million sqft (3/8’’ basis) each year. The company also works together with other laminating firms besides PSPI. These partnerships are to continue regardless of the acquisition.
