Growing the China Market

Steve Hofer, VP, Sales & Marketing
June 6, 2013

China has become a growing market for Interfor’s quality lumber products – and it holds great promise with demands for new housing and urbanization.

Importers in Shanghai clearly want to learn more about North America’s lumber market dynamics, and how it could affect them. I discovered this first-hand when I spoke to importers at a session in Shanghai – there was obvious interest around what is happening in the North American lumber market.

Interfor has a lot to offer our customers in China. Sam Hui, our Director, Business Development – China, provides support for customers and identifies new opportunities in this key region. We are the third-largest supplier of Southern Yellow Pine to China, and our Port Angeles mill recently started up early to meet offshore needs.
