LP Increases Production of LP Legacy® Premium Sub-Floor with Addition of Hanceville, Ala., Mill

LP Building Products has added manufacturing capabilities for its new LP Legacy® premium engineered sub-floor to its mill in Hanceville, Ala.

The expedition was the second in LP’s Tested Extreme campaign, designed to differentiate LP Legacy sub-flooring and showcase its premium performance in a unique way. In the first test, panels were sent over a 70-foot waterfall and left to soak in the wake overnight.
