Wilsonart Expands TFL Production Capacity
AUSTIN, TX — Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces is increasing its TFL (Thermally Fused Laminate) capacity and footprint in North America with a new facility in Klamath Falls, OR, the Austin, TX-based company announced.
The facility, currently under construction, is expected to be fully operational by July 2021, Wilsonart officials said.
“Our offerings have garnered tremendous support from both specifiers and fabricators,” said V.P./Product Management Ron Ubertini. “TFL is a key part of that offering, and this next expansion is a continuation of our strategy to enable us to meet growing demand and better serve our customers.”
The company’s investment in land and a new quick-cycle press, which will significantly increase production capability on the West Coast, is the latest milestone in the growth of its TFL business, Ubertini noted. In 2016, Wilsonart acquired TFL manufacturing in Oxford, MS, and purchased two quick-cycle press lines, and in 2017 the company expanded its TFL portfolio with the acquisition of KML Corp. based in Tacoma, WA.
