Unilin commissions Russian laminate flooring mill

Home Categories Laminate Unilin commissions Russian laminate flooring mill

Dalton—Unilin started operating a laminate flooring mill built in the Russian administrative district of Nizhny-Novgorod in the second half of September. The company will initially run a short-cycle press and a profiling line at the new facility.

The profiling line was transferred to Russia from the Mouscron plant, which closed in June 2009. This latter complex, originally owned by Decolam, which the firm bought in early 2001, was primarily set up to make products with a V join. The older short-cycle press and second profiling line in Mouscron were originally supposed to be transferred to Russia, too, but will now likely not be used any more.
