15 Korean Buyers attended the 2010 Global Buyers Mission. They were comprised of importers, wholesalers and key purchasers of value added wood products for interior and exterior finishing materials, windows, doors, roofing, kitchen cabinets, decking materials, dimension, specialty lumber, etc.
Right before the GBM, the Korean buyers visited with BC Wood members over three days. They went on site visits, toured product facilities, learned about the different products used for buildings such as the Olympic Oval. They had a chance to visit Wishing Tree Model Homes, Pacific Rim, Sauder Moulding, Mitsui Homes, Teal Jones Group, Interfor, Acorn Mill, Fraserview Cedar Products, RONA shop, construction sites in Squamish, and took part in an Eco Forest tour in Whistler.
Mostly the Korean buyers are satisfied with the Global Buyers Mission and their meetings with a selection of diverse wooden products suppliers. BC Wood’s Korean market rep., JC, will follow up continuously with the buyers to connect with the members.
