Diamond Mark Chinese plywood to arrive in UK

12 March 2018

Caledonian Plywood Company’s (CPC) first shipment of Chinese plywood certified under the TFT Woodexperts Diamond Mark is due to reach the UK shortly.

The Diamond Mark plywood is the result of collaboration between Glasgow-based CPC and third party certifiers TFT Woodexperts.

It has been produced by the first mill in China to carry the Diamond Mark to both EN 314-2 and –EN 314-3.

“We asked Jim Coulson, TFT Woodexpert’s director, to visit south-west China in December last year to personally check out the manufacturing and quality control procedures at the plywood mill we operate in Nanning,” said Stuart McKelvie, purchasing director of CPC.
