The Province will help made-in-B.C. manufactured wood products access new market opportunities with $250,000 to promote B.C.’s competitive and sustainable wood products suppliers. …The funding, provided through the Ministry of Forests, is for BC Wood to market the province’s wood manufacturing sector in global markets. “Showcasing and marketing B.C. wood products on the global stage is important work that spotlights the innovation our sector is known for,” said Brian Hawrysh, CEO, BC Wood. …To further support local wood manufacturers, the Province has a Value-Added Manufacturing Program, run by BC Timber Sales, which provides a dedicated, open-market supply of fibre for small and medium-sized manufacturers. …This is going to help us access the fibre we need to make the high-value products Silva Timber Products manufactures, and create jobs here at home,” said Richard Kaufmann, CEO, Silva Timber Products.
