Solid Wood Innovation shareholding

PF Olsen is a founding shareholder of WQI Ltd, the company that runs SWI Solid Wood Innovation. SWI is a pan-industry collaborative initiative applying world best-practice in the prioritisation and management of research and development and the commercialisation of key innovations to improve solid wood processing.

PF Olsen's involvement in SWI is based on understanding that by increasing the value of processed wood, the financial returns of forest investment also increase. Much of the research is focussed on better identification of key wood quality characteristics, learning how to measure them, and then segregating logs as early as possible so as to allocate them to the most appropriate end use. This form of pro-active marketing eliminates waste and makes logs more valuable.
