VALMIERA, Latvia , November 9, 2012 (press release) – On the 1st of November Byko-Lat has started its new impregnation line at its Valmiera site in Latvia. Byko-Lat’s annual impregnation capacity has increased to 145 000 m3 making Byko-Lat the largest impregnation company in the Baltic States.

- The main reason for the capacity increase is to have shorter lead times to our customers in Europe, says Valts Kurpnieks, Managing Director at Byko Lat.
