Versatile, Sustainable American Softwoods on Show at WOODEX for Africa
American Softwoods (AMSO), a promotional partnership between three major U.S. softwood trade associations, will be exhibiting alongside local timber industry players at this year’s WOODEX for Africa trade expo at the Gallagher Convention Centre, from 5-7 June.
The AMSO partnership comprises the export divisions of America’s Southern Forest Products Association, the Softwood Export Council and APA – the Engineered Wood Association. The organisation promotes the use of American softwoods for both internal and external projects and works with the global timber industry, providing technical information and assistance to develop the worldwide market for American softwoods.
“We have been looking forward with great anticipation to the WOODEX event,” said AMSO Consultant, Charles Trevor, “It’s the ideal platform for AMSO to broaden its network of South African buyers and enter into deeper discussions with individual buyers about their particular needs and requirements. I believe it will also help to broaden our understanding of the local timber environment, placing us in a better position to contribute meaningfully to this vibrant market.”
