Greensboro, N.C.-based Columbia Forest Products recently acquired a hardwood veneer processing facility in Ecuador. The facility was previously owned by 3A Composites.

The agreement comes as part of a long-term sourcing agreement for FSC-Certified wood from plantations in the region, which the company uses in the production of its interior doors.

“Our customer base has really taken to the advantages of MPX panel construction, and we’re thrilled to have a sustainable new source of hardwood cross-band material,” says Brad Thompson, Columbia’s president and CEO. “It’s a solution that helps our fabricating customers, and it helps Columbia more effectively extend our domestically-sourced hardwood supply from North America.”
