UNICOR, Office Furniture Group (OFG), is soliciting prequalification proposals from vendors for a 3 phase, automated finishing line to include stain, sealer and top coat for flat panels with veneer and lumber banding with a variety of profiles.

Panel sizes:
Minimum and Maximum dimensions of Allenwood Furniture (AWFT) panels for Length, Width, and Thickness.

Minimums: L = 70 mm W= 37 mm TH= 3 mm
Maximums: L = 2592 mm W = 1917 mm TH= 51 mm
** at least 90 % of AWFT production falls within the 18 to 30 mm range for thickness.
