Asia’s first commercial Wood Distribution & Training Centre is being established in Java, Indonesia, featuring a wood-based products distribution centre and training facility. Set up by APP Timber, the one-hectare site (2.5 acre) will also house a veneer showcase, inviting buyers to inspect a wide variety of veneer species and experience new techniques for veneer applications. It will also provide offices for rental by distributors of wood-related products, such as adhesives, sanding papers and equipment.
The first building is currently under construction and will be ready by the end of this year; the second phase is to be completed by mid-2017; the third phase for construction in 2018 is now in the planning stage and the whole project is being considered for replication in Vietnam.
Established in 1998, APP Timber now has 70 employees based all over Asia in seven locations. The company’s turnover has grown to $30 million in recent years and is aiming for $50 million by 2020.
