Come visit us at Atlanta Forest Products Expo 2013! Booth 700


From June 5 to 7, 2013, we will be enjoying the heat of Atlanta for the 2013 SFPA Forest Products Expo!

We’re looking forward to meeting new people as well as catching up with a lot of the usual suspects in this great industry.

As we just did in Germany a few weeks ago, we’ll be showing off a few of the sensors that we use in various applications.  We always seek the best product for a customer’s requirements, and welcome the chance to discuss different sensor options. We’ll happily show you our latest cutting-edge products and discuss how we can apply our skills to your sawmill processes.

Please come and visit us at Booth #700!

Come visit us at Ligna 2013! Hall 27 Stand B09


Another 2 years have passed already, and we are again planning our trip to Hannover, Germany!

This marks at least our 7th time attending Ligna as an exhibitor, and a great chance to meet with our customers, fellow suppliers, friends, as well as make some new acquaintances.  Ligna has always been a very good opportunity for us to learn new market needs in addition to showcasing our products and how our systems apply to the future of sawmilling.

This year, we will be showing off a few of the sensors that we use in various applications.  We always seek the best product for a customer’s requirements, and we welcome the chance to discuss different sensor options with you. Of course, we will be happy to show you our latest cutting-edge products and developments as well, and would be very interested to learn of your sawmill philosophy and needs.  We may not have a solution to every problem, but quite often we have seen approaches others have taken for a simliar problem and could offer open discussion.

Please come and visit us in Hall 27, at stand B09!

High Cost of Timber Hits Furniture Markets


Furniture manufactures are facing manifold problems and challenges due to high cost of wood as well as non-availability of quality wood in required quantity. A survey of furniture markets revealed that there were only a few buyers of furniture although wedding season is in full swing.

The high cost of the furniture has threatened the sector as a whole. The prices of raw materials used in making furniture which include chipboard, timber, foam, polish chemical materials, colour paints and hard ware have increased. Timber production on the other hand has gone down drastically because of unchecked deforestation. The prices of average quality furniture registered an increase of 25 to 30 percent due to high cost of wood and its shortage. Another reason of shortage of wood is said to be smuggling of sheesham wood to Dubai under the garb of raw material for making boats.
