Georgia-Pacific today announced a sales and distribution agreement with Lamco Forest Products, the maker of innovative laminated finger-jointed lumber (LFL) products. Lamco will manufacture several LFL products and sell them under the Georgia-Pacific brand.
"We're looking forward to adding Lamco LFL product to our portfolio," said Paul Watterson, general manager for Georgia-Pacific's engineered lumber business. "It complements our line of I-joist, LVL, rim board and glulam products, as well as adds a product that helps meet fire-related codes being adopted in some of the geographies in which we sell."
Lamco's LFL products are an engineered wood product made using a patented process combining double tongue and groove and finger joints to create a dimensional beam that resists twisting, cracking and warping.
"We are proud to work with Georgia-Pacific because of their history of providing high-quality engineered wood products to the construction industry," said Andrew Dingman, vice president of sales and market development for Lamco. "We look forward to our relationship and helping grow this business by meeting the needs of our customers today and in the future."
