A North Okanagan lumber producer is looking towards Asia for expanded markets.
Tolko Industries president Brad Thorlakson recently took part in a trade mission to China led by Premier Christy Clark.
“I definitely saw a lot more wood use on this trip,” said Thorlakson. “And the comfort level in building with wood is on the rise. The construction industry in China is shifting—somewhat slowly but when you consider the potential, it’s really exciting.”
China is expected to drive half of all global construction activity until 2020.
