L.L.C. is a wholly owned subsidary of Deltic that manufactures
and markets medium density fiberboard (MDF). The Del-Tin plant
is located near El Dorado, Arkansas, and began production in 1998.
The plant is designed to have an annual capacity of 150 million
square feet (3/4-inch basis), making it one of the largest plants
of its type in the world. MDF, which is used primarily in the
furniture, flooring, and molding industries, is manufactured from
sawmill residuals, such as chips, shavings, and sawdust, held
together by an adhesive bond.
