Freres Lumber First U.S. Plywood Manufacturer to Install Taihei Horizontal Press

Freres Lumber Company is reporting that they are the first U.S. plywood manufacture to install and now operate the Taihei Horizontal Press Model P25-AB., a horizontal hot press for laminating plywood after the gluing and prepressing process. The new press has been in operation since 17th December 2019 and is easier to maintain and is more energy efficient. Unlike the conventional vertical presses found at most U.S. plywood plants, the horizontal press does not require a dedicated operator.
