Lumin launches following acquisition of Weyerhaeuser’s Uruguay operations

September 1, 2017

The Uruguay operations formerly owned by Weyerhaeuser have been re-launched under the Lumin name.

The company, which includes over 300,000 acres (120,000 hectares) of timberlands in northeastern and north central Uruguay, as well as plywood and veneer manufacturing facility, a cogeneration facility, and a seedling nursery, will operate under the Lumin name, the primary brand of products produced by these facilities over the last decade.

“We are proud to announce that henceforth our company will operate under the Lumin name,” said Alvaro Molinari, Managing Director of Lumin. “Not only is this name a testament to the high quality, durable and sustainable products that we produce, but it also recognizes the contributions of our 751 employees, which have made Lumin one of Uruguay’s leading timberland and forest products companies.”
