DescriptionAfter a faltering beginning in 1958, vigorus growth in the 1970s, and extraordinary expansion in 1980, 1981, and 1982, the structuml flakeboard industry in North America is competing strongly with the soft plywood industry in midwestern, eastern, and southern structural panel markets. In early 1982, existing and planned annual capacities in North America totaled about 1,186 million ft2 in Canada and 1,733 million ft2 in the United States (3/8-inch basis). Most mills use aspen, but two currently under construction will use hardwoods indigenous to Louisiana and east Texas.
