Today's Bell Ringer, February 19, 2016

Wood panel producer Norbord rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday.

Representatives of the company attended the event to celebrate its listing on the NYSE, and its president and CEO, Peter Wijnbergen, did the honors.

Norbord's shares trade under the ticker symbol OSB in the United States, and on the Toronto Stock Exchange, where it was already listed, its ticker symbol has changed from NBD to OSB.

Norbord has 2,600 employees and produces wood-based panels in 17 locations in the United States, Canada and Europe.
