Wood-Mizer strengthens its support of the Chinese sawmill market with appointment of new country manager
With more than a decade of experience managing sales in Southeast Asia for a well-known wood processing equipment manufacturer, Nicholas Kong has been chosen by Wood-Mizer to spearhead its efforts in building its presence in the world’s second largest economy.

According to Wood-Mizer, their product line of thin-kerf sawmills cost less to purchase and maintain than traditional sawmill machinery, and the higher yields due to the narrowband blades are a timely solution for the various challenges facing the Chinese timber market today – elevated log prices in China are driving strong demand for importing logs from overseas. Higher yields and lower operating costs could decrease dependence on foreign timber suppliers to keep up with the current demand of construction in China.

Mr. Kong’s extensive experience in establishing and managing networks of agents and representatives will be crucial to Wood-Mizer’s goals of expanding their network of sales and service in China and the Philippines, following the successful pattern that the company has established in the Americas, Europe, and Africa over the last 30 years.
