Balterio intends to invest €12m by the end of 2010

Balterio intends to invest a total of around €12m in modernising laminate flooring production at the location of Vielsalm in Belgium as well as in product development and additional marketing measures.

A variety of optimisation measures are to be implemented in order to increase production capacity of the three existing profiling lines from current levels. Parallel to this development, an automatic quality control system is to be installed. Balterio also operates two short cycle presses and a treater in the laminate flooring mill. The upstream MDF/HDF plant has an annual capacity of around 280,000m³.
