Overview: Industries

Your Industry

We create machines to transform wood into modern engineered wood products that people have come to rely on. Engineered wood products are manufactured by bonding together veneer, lumber, chips, or strands with adhesives to create composite wood products. Engineered wood products can be further categorized into two: mass timber products and wood-based panels.

Mass timber products refer to panels, beams, or columns designed to be used in large-scale construction, providing structural strength and versatility comparable to steel and concrete. Mass timber products include Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT), Glue-Laminated Timber (GLT, glulam), Nail-Laminated Timber (NLT), Laminated Stand Lumber (LSL), Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), Parallel Strand Lumber (PSL), I-joists, Oriented Strand Lumber (OSL), Mass Plywood Panel (MPP) or Veneer-Laminated Lumber VLT, and Massive OSB (MOSB).

Wood-based panels are designed for a wide range of applications in construction, furniture making, and interior design. Wood-based panels include plywood, particle board, solid wood panels, OSB, MDF, and wood fiber panels.
