How current world events are affecting Russian Birch
The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has caused massive uncertainty to the ongoing availability of Russian Birch plywood. While we currently have inbound material, we are still gathering information as to what will be available going forward.
At this time, it appears that most of our vendors that are sourcing from Russian mills are going to be adversely affected by the sanctions that are being imposed on Russia.
In order to supply product to as many customers as possible, Freeman will implement an allocation program based on purchase history.
We do have stock of uncommon sizes that are not on allocation and are available on a first come, first served basis. Contact your sales representative for ordering information.
Please see a detailed letter from our Vice President of Sales and Marketing for more information. You can also contact your local sales representative.
As this is still a fluid situation, we will continue to work closely with our suppliers and proactively provide you with updates as they become available.
