New partnership for flame resistant wood and durable fire protection17 May 2023
Woodsafe Timber Protection AB, Europe's largest manufacturer of durable fire-resistant impregnated wood, and Thermory AS, the world's largest manufacturer of thermally modified wood have announced collaboration for the supply of durable thermally modified fire-resistant wood. Thermory’s real wood products with fire protection are available immediately.
“I am very proud of the trust from a well-respected pioneer, innovator and industry leader in the field of thermally modified wood,” said Thomas Bengtsson, Woodsafe’s founder and CEO. “Together we will contribute to a sustainable society with the forest as a resource.”
"We aspire to improve the environment we live in,” added Simmo Soomets, CEO of Thermory. “Leach-resistant fire protection has been a challenge when creating large public or residential buildings with wood. After a long testing period of comparing different technologies, we are happy to partner with Woodsafe to offer this durable extra layer to our real wood products.”
“It’s inspiring to merge our areas of expertise – thermally modified and durable fire-protected wood – on top of Thermory's sustainable products and Woodsafe’s low energy production and present our combined solution to the global market,” said Peter Johnson, Woodsafe’s product and business development manager.
