Canoe Forest Products site operations manager Marcello Angelozzie takes people on a tour of the plywood mill’s new greenend line lathe as it rapidly analyzes and peels logs, then sorts and stacks the veneer, utilizing state of the art technology, during an open house for the 50th anniversary, held last Wednesday. Angelozzie says the new line cost $16 million, and offers a 10 to 12 per cent recovery benefit over the mill’s previous lathe. This equates to about 25,000 cubic metres of logs annually and more than $2 million. The line requires six employees to operate but, because it has improved production, it has created more volume for manufacturing.
