Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – The Malaysian Timber Council has launched a new publication called the “Malaysian Hardwood Guide” on Malaysian hardwoods.

The Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) attends up to 40 trade events around the world annually, in established and new markets. It promotes hardwood products ranging from logs and sawn timber to mouldings, veneer, plywood, particleboard, medium density fibreboard (MDF), wooden and rattan furniture, builders’ carpentry and joinery items, as well as niche-market products like picture frames, pre-finished parquetry, wooden doors and laminated veneer lumber.

These hardwood products are now detailed in this Malaysian Hardwood Guide to be distributed at all events attended by MTC.

“The Malaysian Hardwood Guide is an introduction to the exciting world of Malaysian timber-based products, whether made predominantly using Malaysian timbers, or in combination with other timber species from around the world,” said Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang, Chairman of MTC.

The articles in this inaugural edition of the Guide are meant to provide background information on many of these products, as well as feature a few exciting projects in which Malaysian timbers have been applied to excellent effect. The Guide should assist traders, manufacturers, specifiers and developers to understand the choices of hardwood products available from Malaysia.
