Uniboard announced a $38.5 million investment for its Val-d’Or facility. This new round of modernization will focus on screening, sifting, milling and intermediary storage equipment, which will lay the foundation for upgrading the Val-d’Or press and finishing lines.
With the installation of new state-of-the art, innovative equipment, Uniboard is pursuing its vision of operational and product excellence for its Val-d’Or facility. The project’s new dry preparation capabilities will substantially improve fiber processing efficiency and also involves a new building with state-of-the-art protection safety systems for employees.

We are taking the next step-up at Val-d’Or so that our customers throughout North America will continue to be well served for the next 40 years,” said James N. Hogg, President and CEO of Uniboard. “This important modernization project confirms Uniboard’s leadership position in the North American composite panel industry and allows Uniboard to further enhance its offering of engineered wood and value-added products.”
