Segezha Group enters into Japanese glulam market

Segezha Group has entered into the Japanese market of glued laminated timber (glulam) and structural glued laminated beams. The first batch consisting of 10 containers (550 m3) from the Sokol Woodworking Plant JSC has been shipped to Japan. The Sojitz Building Materials Corporation is the buyer.

As per the request of the Japanese client, Segezha Group is manufacturing glulam products specifically designed to meet the standard parameters in Japan.

The company has started to establish positions in the Japanese market thanks to the modernisation of production conducted in 2020 and the certification of compliance with Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS) that was awarded to Sokol Woodworking Plant JSC in 2021. This certification is required for a company to be a supplier of processed wood products to Japan. Segezha Group has complied with all the JAS requirements in terms of quality, size, strength classes, glue quality, equipment, and technology. The audit was conducted last summer.
