Eugene, OR—States Industries is pleased to announce that it has installed a new, state-of-the-art Costa sander in its plywood panel production facility in Eugene, Oregon. This new capital investment, integrated into the finishing line, reflects States Industries’ ongoing commitment to continual improvement and providing superior, pre-finished plywood with its NOVA line of panel products and components.
“We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality panel products in the industry,” said Mike Taylor, president of States Industries. “Investing in equipment upgrades on a regular basis, to take advantage of technological advancements, is an important part of ensuring our customers continue to receive the same beautiful, consistent, hardwood plywood they’ve come to expect from States.”
Maintenance crews installed the new sander over the weekend. The new hybrid sander employs the latest drum-and-platen-head technologies to provide a smoother, more uniform panel surface. This makes panels more receptive to stains and coatings and results in a significantly improved final product.
