Wilsonart Expands TFL Capacity

Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces has announced it will increase its TFL (Thermally Fused Laminate) capacity and footprint in North America by investing in a new facility in Klamath Falls, Ore. The new facility is expected to be fully operational by July 2021. Wilsonart’s investment in land and a new quick-cycle press is the latest milestone in the growth of its TFL business.

In 2015, Wilsonart added branded TFL Panels to its Coordinated Surfaces suite, becoming the single-source for HPL (High Pressure Laminate), TFL Panels, Edgeband and Cabinet Doors. Over the next few years, the company expanded its TFL manufacturing with the purchase of two quick-cycle press lines and then expanded its portfolio even further with the acquisition of KML Corp. “Our offerings have garnered tremendous support from both specifiers and fabricators. TFL is a key part of that offering, and this next expansion is a continuation of our strategy to enable us to meet growing demand and better serve our customers,” said Vice President, Product Management, Ron Ubertini.

The new Oregon facility will support the continued growth of KML and Wilsonart branded TFL products. By offering the best available match between materials in the industry, Wilsonart eliminated one of the most common frustrations design professionals face — the convenience of matching cabinet doors, casework and worktops from one source. This program provides hassle-free specifying across surfacing options while leveraging Wilsonart’s renowned world-class distribution network.
