Welcome to the latest issue of WoodTECH.news.
This September is a big month. WoodTECH 2019 will be running in New Zealand next week and Australia the week after. This is one of the largest gatherings for sawmilling companies across the region. It pulls together leading experts, innovators and practitioners from around the globe in wood scanning, sawing, saw sharpening and mill maintenance technologies. For full details and last-minute registrations check out the WoodTECH 2019 website.
In this month’s issue, we have details on the just announced plans for the sale of New Zealand’s largest wood manufacturer and exporter of pine products Claymark Group Holdings. The company, founded in 1988 by Mark Clayton and currently employing over 600 staff across six sites throughout the central North Island, is well recognised within the industry for their investment in new technology. It’s being purchased by another NZ company, NZ Future Forest Products, a forestry and wood products business that specialises in modular engineered timber building solutions.
Among the other stories this month, we cover; a new promotional campaign highlighting building with Tasmanian timber, an in-depth look at wood scanning systems, the announcement of a new Wood Cluster Centre of Excellence to be built in Gisborne and an investment in the future of Queensland-based Cypress sawmill.
