ARAUCO North America is an industry leader in the production and supply of quality composite wood and plywood panels.


Formerly operating as a division of ARAUCO, Flakeboard has a history that dates back to its incorporation in 1960. The company grew from a pilot plant, designed to showcase panel manufacturing equipment, to a multi-site, world-scale producer of composite wood products.


Using lumber industry by-products and under-utilized wood species once land-filled or burned as waste by forestry operators or sawmills, the company manufactures a variety of particleboard, medium density fibreboard (MDF) and FIBREX® thin high density MDF.


ARAUCO’s ability to service a broad range of market needs stems from a diverse range of technological capabilities, its import division, along with its national and global reach.
