Arauco Announces Closure of Particleboard Line in Moncure N.C.

Arauco has announced that it intends to cease production of particleboard at their Moncure N.C. facility effective April 2020. Arauco said the decision, announced Jan. 30, was based on an assessment over several years that the older manufacturing platform was less competitive in a challenging marketplace compared to the company’s other more advanced, high-capacity particleboard platforms. Arauco also announced its intention to integrate the MDF line with a moulding line to create an advanced MDF millwork operation in Moncure.
