Business Talk: Wood Treatment Companies

I wonder if there are any wood preserving companies in the Philippines like Pacific Wood Preserving Company (PWP). PWP supplies treated wood products in the US.

Wood Treatment involves soaking wood products with chemicals in order to extend its life. PWP supplies pressure treated lumber and other wood treatment products. Pressure treated lumber is a wood immersed in preservatives and then placed in a pressure chamber. It’s more effective than soaking wood because the chemicals get into the core of the wood.

I don’t know whether it would be easy to put up a Wood Treatment company like PWP in the Philippines but would it be lucrative? Well, there are already Lumber companies here and if they try going a step further by treating their lumber then their products could be globally competitive.
