Columbia Forest Products Invests Further In Ontario, Canada. Acquires Nova Wood Lamination Inc in Kitchener, Ontario.

Nova Wood Lamination IncColumbia Forest Products announced that they have purchased the shares of Nova Wood Lamination Inc from its founding owners, Frank and Donna Decicco.

“Frank, Donna and the rest of the Nova Wood Lamination team have built an outstanding reputation for delivering a diverse mix of high quality products and services to the decorative hardwood panel industry,” stated Columbia’s Executive Vice President, Gary Gillespie. “We are very happy to add the Nova Wood Lamination facility to the Columbia family of decorative hardwood veneer and plywood facilities.”

Gilles Levesque, Columbia’s General Manager of Canadian Plywood Operations, added, “The Nova Wood plant’s flexible production capabilities and its proximity to attractive Canadian and U.S. markets make Nova Wood Lamination a great addition for Columbia’s customers, suppliers and shareholders.”

Columbia’s acquisition of Nova Wood Lamination comes on the heels of other recent investments in Ontario by the company. Last fall, they commissioned a new Meinan core peeling lathe at their Hearst, Ontario plywood plant, and just this month re-started their hardwood veneer peeling operation in Rutherglen, Ontario.

Gillespie reiterated, “We are high on Ontario; its resources, suppliers, the close working relationships we enjoy with the government agencies, and especially, the dedicated workforce we employ across the province.”
