Organizers of the 2012 Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo (PELICE) announce that three more companies have signed on as exhibitor sponsors for the event to be held March 1-2 at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. PELICE, which is held every other year, is hosted by Panel World magazine and Georgia Research Institute.

The newcomers bring the exhibitor count up to 55, with only a few booth spaces still remaining. The conference features more than 50 speakers who will address a range of issues and technologies in the structural and non-structural wood products industries.

The three newest exhibitors, all of which have signed on as Bronze sponsors, include:

Limab North America—specializes in measurement systems and dimensional control for thickness, width and board measurement.

Metriguard—produces equipment for testing strength and other properties in veneer, panels and fingerjoints, as well as equipment for the manufacture of MSR, MEL, MGP, MSG and E-rated lumber and provides off-line quality control equipment, mounting hardware, accessories, parts and supplies.

USNR—manufactures a diverse range of machinery and systems, including lathe systems, veneer dryers, panel presses, gluing systems and handling equipment, for the panel, board and engineered wood products industries.

Joining PELICE as co-sponsors of the reception to be held on the evening of the first day of the event are:

Chem-Trend—makes mold release agents, casting lubricants, purging compounds, mold cleaners and more for use in manufacturing processes worldwide.

Matros Technologies—provides high-performance catalysts for a wide spectrum of chemical and air pollution control applications.

TimTek—is technology for the production of long-fiber structural engineered lumber with high-strength properties of select-grade sawn timber and produced in lengths and cross sections greater than can be achieved from the largest logs.

Forest Products Society Southeastern Section—represents public and private research, development, industrial management, marketing, education, engineering, sales, supply, and consulting interests to members in the Southeast U.S.
