Cohn Construction Services To Build Arauco Expansion

Bennettsville, SC, August 20, 2018– Cohn Construction Services is the chosen general contractor for the expansion of the ARAUCO plant in Bennettsville, SC.

Cohn will build a 101,225 square feet pre-engineered metal building including a main warehouse component, a truck loading component and a bridge connector to the existing building. The building includes a wet fire protection system. This new expansion will create more production space for ARAUCO and bring more job opportunities to Bennettsville. Construction will begin in August 2018.

In North America, ARAUCO produces many sustainable forest product solutions, including composite panels, premium plywood, millwork, lumber and wood pulp. Wood used in the composite panels is recovered fiber, obtained from post-industrial and post-consumer sources.

The acquisition of manufacturing plants in the United States and Canada, and recently in Mexico, Europe and South Africa, has established the company as the second largest wood panel producer worldwide.
