LP to Build Siding Facility in Upstate New York
LP Building Solutions, the Nashville, TN-based manufacturer of siding and other high-performance building products, will build a new LP SmartSide ExpertFinish pre-finishing facility on 75 acres in Bath, NY, the company announced.
“LP’s pre-finished siding product, ExpertFinish, has seen phenomenal growth since launching in 2020,” said LP executive VP of Siding Neil Sherman. “To support strong customer demand, LP is aggressively pursuing pre-finishing capacity expansion plans within our existing facilities, as well through this facility in Steuben County, NY.”
The Southern Tier region of New York is ideally suited for ExpertFinish production, LP officials said, due to its proximity to the new construction and remodeling home siding markets in the northeastern U.S. The new facility, which is expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2023, will be designed for future expansion and will join LP’s three existing siding pre-finishing facilities, in Roaring River, NC, Green Bay, WI and St. Louis, MO, LP officials added.
The publicly traded Louisiana-Pacific Corp. operates 25 plants across the U.S., Canada, Chile and Brazil.
