Columbia Forest Products has announced an agreement with Greenwod Tree Farm Fund (GTFF) to use its FSC-certified timber for its MPX hardwood plywood.

The plantation-grown hybrid poplar log will be used for the creation of core veneers for the hardwood panels, which feature PureBond formaldehyde-free technology. Popular panels are superior to those made of fir and pine, according to the manufacturer, because they can suppress the thickness variation and core telegraphing of the veneers.

CFP Components, a division of Columbia Forest Products, has acquired Cabinotch, a maker of ready-to-assemble face-framed cabinet boxes that feature Columbia’s formaldehyde-free PureBond hardwood plywood.

The Cabinotch system, which involves a patent-pending interlocking side panel-to-face frame joint, has been shown to help cabinet shops reduce costs and improve productivity, according to the company.
