Pose Media Indokreasi Selenggarakan Seminar US Softwoods Pertama kali di Indonesia

Dewan Ekspor Softwoods (SEC) Amerika pertama kali hadir di pasar industri perkayuan di Indonesia memperkenalkan American Softwoods ke kalangan industri mebel melalui seminar di kota Semarang dan Surabaya, 16 & 20 Februari 2017 lalu.

SEC memperkenalkan beberapa jenis species softwoods Amerika yang telah populer di pasar Amerika, Jepang dan negara lain. Diharapkan kehadiran US Softwoods ke pasar Indonesia dapat memberikan ragam alternatif penggunaan bahan baku kayu softwoods untuk kebutuhan berbagai aplikasi.

Penyelenggaraan seminar softwood yang pertama di Indonesia ini cukup menuai sukses, sebagaimana disampaikan oleh Eric Gee, Director of Expo, Lumber Products and Forest Resources SFPA (Southern Forest Products Association): Two successful presentations in Semarang and Surabaya introduced key decision makers to American Softwoods. The seminars provided an interactive learning environment where the audience eagerly engaged both speakers on a variety of subjects. During the reception which followed each event, attendees continued their inquiries about American Softwoods, including sustainability, stand rotation, and product qualities. Several opportunities are present for increased American softwood exports to Indonesia. Low manufacturing costs and abundant labor supply make Indonesia a prime market for softwood usage in furniture, doors, and moulding. One factor that should not be overlooked is America’s stable supply of legally sourced softwoods. Wood product certification is key for the in-country manufacturers to export their finished product. While markets for preservative pressure treated lumber exist, proper retention levels and recommended preservative types should be investigated before making recommendations in this severe wood decay hazard environment”.

 

US Softwoods memiliki serangkain jenis-jenis kayu atau species seperti Southern Pine (SYP), yang memiliki keunggulan kekerasan (density 609 kg/m3) untuk aplikasi struktural dan non-struktural. Jenis lain juga seperti Spruce, Cedar, Eastern White Pine, Douglas-fir, Hem-fir, dan masih banyak lagi, yang tumbuh cukup banyak di wilayah barat Amerika, baik di kawasan pantai maupun di pedalaman. Kedepan, SEC akan bermitra dengan mitra distribusi lokal di Indonesia guna menjamin ketersediaan jenis kayu softwoods.
