Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces Acquires Oxford, Mississippi, Manufacturing Plant

Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces, a world leading engineered surfaces company, reached an agreement with Roseburg Forest Products to acquire manufacturing assets in Oxford, Mississippi. The facility, which manufactures Thermally Fused Melamine Panels, will become an integral part of Wilsonart’s Coordinated Surfaces program in North America.

"The Oxford facility is a logical extension of Wilsonart’s state-of-the-art manufacturing operations in North America, and will provide our customers greater access to the best-matched TFL Panels that are part of Wilsonart’s Coordinated Surfaces program,” said Ron Ubertini, Wilsonart vice president, product management.

“Our customers expect a range of decorative surfaces that offer beautiful design and performance according to a project’s needs. Expanding our manufacturing footprint enables us to improve service and meet the growing demand for this product,” he added.

In 2014, Wilsonart launched the Coordinated Surfaces program, a suite of best-matched surfacing options including high pressure laminate, TFL panels and edge banding featuring Wilsonart designs and textured finishes. “Specifiers asked for a program that ensures their design vision will carry through the projects they are working on with flexibility to match performance and budget requirements,” Ubertini said. “That’s what Coordinated Surfaces is all about.”
