Kandla importers get a taste of Canadian wood

Canadian Wood hosted an educational seminar on July 9, 2018, at Kandla, for the community of timber traders and importers at Gandhidham, who between them account for over 70% of the total solid wood imports into India.

The event was well attended by industry leaders from over 25 leading companies. FII-India Country Director, MrPraneshChhibber, welcomed the guests and apprised them about FII and its activities in India.

An engaging presentation on ‘Creative Solutions with Canadian Wood’ was made by FII’s Technical Advisor, Mr Peter Bradfield, sharing various aspects of building with wood, furniture manufacturing, innovative interior solutions and outdoor applications, emerging trends and new-age wood technology.

He also showcased projects and products produced by Indian manufacturers. An interactive session followed the presentation between FII India team and the participants.

Queries and questions on a variety of topics with regard to Canadian wood species, their properties and applications were asked and addressed to their satisfaction. It was heartening to see many new faces and note their interest in Canadian wood.
