Collins Aerospace offers environmentally-friendly lumber alternative

Exact board matching is achieved using PrecisionPlank’s proprietary method of spacing the board’s wood grain to replicate the grain of the chosen veneer. Additionally, the board is free from the knots, defects and color variance commonly found in raw lumber, enabling Collins Aerospace to provide business jet cabinet shops with the precise board at the right size to match their veneer.

“Typically, cabinet shops spend an incredible amount of time milling down raw lumber in the hopes of finding an exact board match. The amount of wasted lumber and man hours is enormous,” said Webb. “We’re thrilled to eliminate that guesswork and give our customers a more environmentally sustainable alternative.”

PrecisionPlank is available to business jet operators in as little as one week – a fraction of the 9 to 12 week lead time typical of composite lumber procurement.
