Marwood to build new bridge technology
Sept. 19, 2013 - A New Brunswick-based company that has been treating lumber since the 1960s in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia plans to expand into Newfoundland. It plans to make use of the province's underutilized wood to make value-added lumber such as fence posts and lattice panels as well as treated lumber encapsulated with fibreglass to be used in bridge building. This new technology is lightweight but strong and can be installed more quickly than concrete.
