ARAUCO’s Pulp Mill in the Biobio region of Chile is undergoing a major pulp production expansion. It is one of the largest pulp investments in the world. ARAUCO is a global forest products company operating 42 sawmills in North America, South America, Europe, and South Africa.
In June of 2019, the general contractor chose Portland Bolt to provide a large number of anchor bolts for this project based on other projects we had supplied for them, our quality, reliability, service and in-house hot-dip galvanizing line.
This project required custom manufactured hot-dip galvanized and plain finish anchor rods. The product needed to ship in wooden export boxes for protection.
Portland Bolt has supplied over 122,000 pounds of anchor bolt assemblies for this project.
