Sustainable use of timber seminars

Our seminars on use of sustainable timber held this week have been well received and we are pleased to be able to offer these as to all as learning experience. We are lucky to be able to call on such experienced speakers as Criswell Davis and Laurens Notenboom. The link here sets out the overall theme and we have some photos from the event. We had some nice coasters made and these were handed out at the seminars, see below.

The Accoya story continues with more science and research supporting the marketing work we do. The Graph below depicts results done by independent research in Norway and shows just how far ahead of all competing products Accoya is. the bottom line represents Accoya. The results do show a disappointing result for Thermo wood. a link to the paper is set out below.

On the effect of climate and exposure conditions on durability indicators and their potential for service life prediction of  woodbased products.. Research being

Scion Research in Rotorua have an ongoing research project ( now 10 years old) and this shows how Accoya compares to the local timbers.

The response has been fantastic to the seminars and we plan more (details available at ...)and we got some rave reviews..

Next year we aim to have an Australian influence added to showcase some of the beautiful Australian Hardwoods that are all PEFC certified and readily available from Timspec. watch out for the invites and if you want to find out more register your interest here...

/imagesdb/Issue/283ae19f-4125-4c2a-b276-7a18c196d7c1.jpgThe year in review
A great year with strong growth again, although as is the norm in our industry there are lots of peaks and troughs along the way. Very strong regional patterns emerging with 3 areas standing out. Central Otago, Canterbury and Auckland are the drivers, the rest are small by comparison.
