NEW LIMERICK, Maine — Another major expansion is coming for a New Limerick mill that is already one of the area’s largest employers.Odd that such a product would ship west on the SLR, since Irving could simply route that traffic via CP or CSXT.
Louisiana-Pacific Houlton is starting a $400 million expansion to its New Limerick plant to double the production capacity of SmartSide Siding and Trim, which is engineered wood strand technology that protects against hail, wind, moisture, fungal decay and termites, the company said.
Wednesday’s announcement comes just two months after LP unveiled a $150 million renovation to its plant to produce the SmartSide line of products. The new expansion will add approximately 100 new jobs.
