LP Building Solutions has announced the completion of the sale of its engineered wood products (EWP) business to Pacific Woodtech for US$210m.

The acquisition includes LP’s laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and I-joist manufacturing facilities in Wilmington, North Carolina; Red Bluff, California; and Golden, British Columbia, Canada, associated timber license assets, and the SolidStart brand.

The deal was first announced in June.
