RedBuilt doubles capacity with new laminated veneer lumber line
BOISE, Idaho (Aug. 26, 2015) — RedBuilt LLC, a leading manufacturer of engineered structural wood products, today announced the addition of a new laminated veneer lumber (LVL) line at its engineered lumber products facility in Stayton, Ore. RedBuilt’s new four-foot LVL press is being supplied by Taihei Machinery, a top manufacturer of plywood and woodworking machinery in Komaki City, Japan.
“This press will nearly double our existing RedLam™ LVL capacity,” RedBuilt President and CEO Kurt Liebich said. “Our new line will help us meet demand for our engineered wood products. We’re committed to investing in the future of the business and providing the innovative solutions our customers have depended on for decades.”
Shortly after the invention of LVL in the 1970s by Art Troutner, who was co-founder of RedBuilt’s predecessor company, it quickly gained a foothold in the industry as a stronger, lighter weight product that minimized inconsistencies found in natural wood.
“LVL is at the heart of virtually all of our products, from RedLam headers and beams and flanges in Red-I I-joists and open-web trusses, to RedPlank scaffold plank and our concrete forming and shoring solutions,” Liebich said. “With this new line, RedBuilt is better positioned to control the supply and quality of products we manufacture and serve our customers’ growing needs.”

Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, RedBuilt operates four manufacturing plants and more than 30 design and sales offices throughout the United States.
