Uniboard Canada’s newly created Uniboard Surfaces Inc. subsidiary will increase its annual laminate flooring capacity to more than 100 million square feet through construction of a $38 million manufacturing facility in Laval, Quebec.

The expansion is expected to create more than 150 jobs. The new facility will include state-of-the-art laminating, cutting, machining, packaging equipment and climate control for product conditioning. In addition, the plant will recycle and convert all process residues into thermal energy.
