Tafisa Canada, a subsidiary of the Sonae Indústria group, announced today (7-6-22), a total of $62 million (CAD) in investments in its facilities in Lac-Mégantic. After a $28 million investment, Tafisa officially inaugurated its new 70,000 sq. ft. plant dedicated to the production of a collection of lacquered panels called LUMMIA.

Tasfisa also announced a $ 34 million investment to expand its main plant. The investment will include the installation of a sixth TFL production line and the expansion of the finished product warehouse. The new production line will be in operation in the fall of 2023 and will increase the proportion of panels that will be laminated with the ability to produce decorative panels with two-sided synchronized embossing (EIR) texture, improve internal flows and service reliability to North American customers.

Tafisa says that these new investments will allow it to remain the manufacturer offering the most comprehensive range of decorative surfaces to industry professionals. Tafisa also offers particleboards, decorative panels (TFL), laminate panels (HPL) and mouldings for the manufacture of cabinet doors.
