LP increases production of Legacy sub-floor with addition of Alabama mill
Nashville, Tenn. — LP Building Products has added manufacturing capabilities for its new LP Legacy premium engineered sub-floor to its mill in Hanceville, Ala. LP says the increased capacity will help the company meet increasing demand for LP Legacy while expanding market availability and supply efficiencies into Texas and other regions west of the Mississippi.
To manufacture LP Legacy in Hanceville, which also produces LP TechShield radiant barrier sheathing, TopNotch 250 and 350 sub-flooring, and other sheathing and industrial panels, the company made investments in its equipment there. These include upgrades to its resin application process to accommodate Gorilla Glue Technology and higher-quality printing capabilities as part of its alliance and branding with Gorilla Glue. The printing enhancements also allow for the addition of fastener marks onto Legacy panels. LP also implemented additional quality-control testing.
“LP Legacy has seen tremendous success since it was introduced late last year. Our long-time customers appreciate having a new premium option, and the industry has acknowledged LP Legacy as one of the highest quality sub-floor panels on the market,” said Kayla Boyce, LP’s OSB Product Manager. “The addition of the Hanceville facility will ensure we can keep up with demand and efficiently expand into new regions as more and more builders embrace the product’s benefits. Dealers will also appreciate the ability to obtain mixed loads from the mill.”
