Ante-holz had one of the visually most impressive stands in the Timber Zone, with virtually all the components made from its products.

Glulam sections made up the stand walls, while sections of all its dimension timber were on display, along with new company branding.

“UK business is at a good level,” said export manager Kai Oberlies. “2007 was a good year for business and in 2008 we have increased a little bit.”

The company also showed its KVH timber – a finger-jointed product designed to be more reliable and stable than normal sawn wood. Ante-holz believes the product has good long-term potential in the UK.
