New Coalition for Wood Products Industry Unveiled
November 20, 2009

A new, national coalition was announced recently, formed under the American Wood Council (AWC), which will provide an organizational structure for wood products companies and associations to work together on building codes and standards, green building policy issues, and federal and state environmental regulations affecting manufacturers. Companies of all sizes and from across numerous wood product segments are committing to join together to have an effective voice through the coalition.

Wood products companies from across the nation agree on the need to work together. The coalition began forming in August and already has 40 supporting members representing more than 50 percent of lumber production, 70 percent of structural panel production, and 60 percent of engineered wood products. The coalition is expected to launch on January 1st, 2010.
