|In order to keep you informed, please see the following announcement regarding recent changes in the market, resulting in Birch Dieboard price increases.
The Plywood industry has experienced some turmoil the first quarter of 2018. New taxes and duties on Chinese plywood have increased the demand from Russia and the Baltic regions. Also, a scarcity of birch logs in Russia and a significant increase in birch log exports has resulted in price increases and production delays.
Although the increases vary by mill, your Freeman Technical Representative will be contacting you soon with more information and current pricing to help you successfully manage your business.
Thank you for your continued business, understanding, and support as we keep you updated throughout the summer months.
