AMERICAN HARDWOOD Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

By all measures, 2017 was a record year for U.S. hardwood use in

Southeast Asia. In terms of value in US$, Southeast Asia imported

over $260 million of American hardwoods in 2017. That’s nearly

550,000 cubic metres of hardwoods, or over 18,000 full size 40’

containers. This represents a 20% increase over last year, and a record

year for the Vietnamese, Malaysian, and Philippines markets.

By Tripp Pryor, International Program Manager, American Hardwood Export Council

In aggregate, Southeast Asia imports a

higher volume of American hardwoods

than all of Europe, and is quickly catching

up in terms of total value. The most popular

American hardwood species in Southeast

Asia is tulipwood, which accounts for 52%

of the region’s imports by volume. Also

popular in Southeast Asia is American white

oak, which by volume, is 22% of the region’s

market. Many other American species

grew in popularity in SE Asia last year, but

perhaps one of the biggest winners has

been American red oak. A species unique

to the United States, red oak is prized for

its unique colour, swirling grain patterns,

and ease of workmanship and finishing.

Red oak has long been the most popular

American hardwood in China, and over the

last two years it is becoming more popular

in Southeast Asia. In total, this region

purchased 28% more red oak in 2017 than in

2016, up to over $20 million.

Vietnam led the way in Southeast

Asia with a 22% jump in consumption. As

of 2017, Vietnam represents just over 7%

of the global export market for American

hardwoods and 81% of the Southeast Asian

market. Much of Vietnam’s consumption

of American hardwoods is material for

Southeast Asia for the last three years.

Tulipwood

its booming furniture export sector and

increased use of wood flooring.

Vietnam, like most of Southeast Asia, is

a tulipwood heavy market. However, many

in the region use tulipwood simply as a

direct price competitor to regional species

like rubber wood and acacia. In reality,

tulipwood is one of the best performing

woods in the world in terms of strengthto-weight

ratio and is easy to machine and

glue. The market for tulipwood continues

to grow at a rapid pace, and is supported

by the Asian manufacturers who have come

to understand that tulipwood is more than

a low-cost substitute.

The American Hardwood Export Council

remains committed to growing the profile

and market share of U.S. hardwoods around

the world from our offices in Hong Kong,

Osaka, Dubai, London, Mexico City and our

headquarters in Washington DC. We look

forward to supporting the trade in 2018

and beyond through trade shows, design

projects, events, market reports and honest

advice.

AMERICAN HARDWOOD Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

The world’s forests offer hardwoods of every description and increasingly more and more hardwoods

are being planted, especially in Asia. Why therefore is the North American natural hardwood forest

resource so important to Asian manufacturers? Michael Buckley FIWSc MPhil, explains.

North American hardwood forests offer diversity of species

The hardwood forests of the USA and Canada hold the most

diverse array of hardwood species anywhere in the temperate

regions of the world – and they are under-utilised. Whereas

the hardwood diversity of Europe was largely eliminated in the

last ice-age by the east-west Alps, the same did not happen in

North America where the Appalachian Mountains run north-south

allowing the trees to come back as the ice melted. In consequence,

for example, there are very many oaks in the USA, of which 16 are

commercially available, compared with two oaks in Europe. Other

native species, such as tulipwood, black cherry, black walnut and

hard maple are now unique to the North American continent.

Many of these American hardwood species, from alder to

walnut, are preferred by designers for the choices of colours and

grains they exhibit for furniture, flooring and high-end joinery.

Equally important is the fact that they perform well, depending

whether the priority is strength, hardness, machinability or the

need for a first class finish. Many of them stain easily and well,

providing further choices for designers of interior products and

are available sawn in long lengths and wide boards. Another

issue is the composition of the forests. While species diversity is

important, so is the fact that oak is dominant, representing nearly

40% of the standing timber, at a time when oak is the most popular

temperate hardwood in world markets for hardwood flooring and

furniture. More recently research projects by AHEC have produced

new opportunities for exterior applications. Thermally Modified

Timber (TMT) in ash, oak and tulipwood and Cross Laminated

Timber (CLT) in tulipwood offer new opportunities for American

hardwoods in Asia.

For many product applications (and for paper) Asia’s increasing

plantations of fast-growing species (rubber, acacia, eucalyptus) do

provide some vital material, but their small diameter logs require

more processing of laminating, finger-jointing and gluing. They

cannot match the larger diameter American species for yield in

solid wood. However there is room for both in Asia’s burgeoning

production and consumption. For decorative veneer the USA is

also an essential provider of raw material, often to cover Asia’s

plantation species.

But to come back to the point about harvesting, all 20 main

commercial American hardwoods are readily available in volume

on a consistent basis. When consistency is vital to large scale

manufacturers in Asia, there is another unique benefit which is

High quality sawn lumber from USA

Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

AMERICAN HARDWOOD

the widely accepted NHLA Grading system offered by American

exporters that is capable of providing container after container of

material produced to the same standard. This is not the case for

most other major hardwood producers around the world. Key to

NHLA grading is the ability to predict useable yield with the accuracy

not matched by other grading systems.

In the end it is the environmental credentials of this resource

that are second to none which influence buyers from governments

and retailers to individual consumers. All the scientific evidence

shows that they are growing – by natural regeneration - faster

than they are being harvested; a true measure of sustainability. The

national hardwood forest inventory of standing timber in the USA is

estimated at 13.9 billion cubic metres. Recent work with interactive

maps has revealed that in every hardwood-growing U.S. State the

annual growth exceeds annual harvest and mortality. Some time

ago the UN expressed concern that the American hardwood forests

are not sufficiently harvested and utilised. Reduction in harvesting,

during the economic downturn of 2008/9, can lead to greater tree

mortality returning CO2 to the atmosphere as well as a build-up of

dead fibre presenting forest fire risk.

Why therefore is the North American hardwood resource so

important to Asian manufacturers? By using American hardwoods,

no forests are threatened, which is one way to take the pressure

off Asia’s natural forest resources. In any case many of the unique

American species offered are highly acceptable in world markets

ensuring market access for wood product manufacturing exporters

in Asia. While the USA contains only 8% of the world’s hardwood

forests, it is by far the largest exporter of sawn hardwood, the

majority of which is shipped to Asia, surely a demonstration of its

availability and competitive pricing. Finally, American hardwood

exporters increasingly understand the requirements of Asian

manufacturers and their need to work together – at such events

as the annual AHEC and NHLA conventions where huge numbers of

producers and traders gather together under one roof.

AMERICAN HARDWOOD Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

Phil Fenwick

has been Baillie Lumber’s Director of Asia Sales for many years.

Q: As a producer of red oak lumber what do you see as the main

differences to white oak?

A: The difference between red oak and white oak is that it comes

down to texture and colour. The tubules of white oak are closed,

whereas the red oak tubules are open – giving a little bit more

of a rougher appearance of the grain. In general the other main

difference is there are typically ranges of colour in red oak, such as

tan or wheat all the way to a deep red. White oak tends to be mostly

tan or almost brown in colour. Sometimes it is hard to distinguish

white oak from red oak, especially if the red oak is more northern

due to the very light colour and appearance.

Q: How does red oak perform in flooring and furniture?

A: Red oak performs extremely well in flooring and furniture. In

the U.S. this has been one of the main species used for flooring

for many generations. It is very common that in older homes in

the U.S. owners find numerous different styles and widths of red

oak flooring. Often when a home owner pulls up an old carpet in a

house they are pleased to find red oak floors that they can refinish.

Other aspects of red oak are that it tends to be very steady and

sands and finishes well. Also, since red oak is an open grain species,

when finish is applied it seems to be a little bit more forgiving and

blemishes appear to blend because of the open grain appearance.

Q: In those export markets where you sell red oak, what is the

main reason your customers prefer red to white oak?

A: In most cases, we sell red oak into the markets we do because

it is a species requested. The end products factories are producing

specify red oak as the material of choice. Many times it is because

the products produced are intended for a customer segment

that prefers the look and feel of red oak. For example, the red

oak furniture manufactured in Asia matches up nicely with the

red oak cabinets and floors one would find in many homes in the

U.S., therefore creating more demand. Another reason that some

markets, such as China, tend to buy red oak is because they like the

flexibility the open grain appearance provides in manufacturing

because it is similar to some of the northern white ash and white

oak species that they tend to work with as well.

Q: In terms of the resource what are the pressure on northern

red oak?

A: Red oak grows more abundantly than any other species in North

America. It is the predominant species in the entire Appalachian

region. Additionally, it is not under attack by any invasive bugs

(at the moment). Unlike white ash, white oak, and walnut – which

are all battling challenges.

Q: Can you say something about the grades of red oak and how

they might differ from the grades of other species – if at all?

A: With regard to the grading of red oak compared to other

species, there really is limited to no difference – the grades are all the

same. However, what can be a consideration for customers is the

special sorts that can be requested. We work with many customers

that will request a certain colour sort, width sort or even a length

sort that works particularly well in their manufacturing process.

Q: What is the lowest grade you export?

A: We find that the grades we export are no different from

those we offer in North America. The standard industry grades of

FAS/1F (prime), 1C and 2C are all regularly requested. Occasionally

we will export 3C or a Frame Stock grade, but that is not very

common.

18


Q: What percentage of FAS grade comes from a

sawmill run?

A: The amount of FAS is completely dependent on the

quality of the logs being sawn at the mill. However, in

general, about one-third of a log goes to industrial lumber

products – such as pallets, cants and rail road ties. The

remaining two-thirds is developed into grade lumber with

about 15-20% qualifying to be the FAS/1F grade.

Q: What are the main differences between northern and

southern red oak?

A: The main differences between Northern and Southern red oak,

from my perspective, are the texture and colour. The texture is

much finer on the Northern red oak. This is because the material

grows slower and has a higher number of growth rings per inch

compared to the Southern material. Southern red oak, which has

a longer growing season, results in fewer growth rings per inch

and a much larger chance of mineral in the boards and a darker red

colour.

Something that I think is important to mention about the current

U.S. lumber business is the strength of demand for industrial lumber

products. This would be products such as timbers, cants, railroad

ties (rail sleepers) or crane mat material. We are starting to see a

shortage in supply for green lumber since industrial lumber product

sales are extremely strong at this time. When industrial lumber

products are strong it results in less lumber being manufactured

into grade lumber that the sawmill ends up producing, drying

and exporting. If you talk to manufacturers you will find that it is

becoming a challenge to get as much material as they normally have

in the past since which is a situation to keep an eye on.

AHEC’s 23 rd Southeast Asia & Greater China Convention is being held in Xi’an,

capital of Shaanxi Province, China, from 21 – 22 June 2018.

i’an is often called the birthplace of China’s civilisation as it was

the birthplace of 13 imperial dynasties.

It is most famous for its terracotta warriors, an international

symbol of China’s history and sits at the start of the ancient Silk Road.

Situated in central China, Xi’an is the capital city of the Shaanxi

province. It is the centre of the province’s politics, economy and culture,

and ranked the 33 rd most competitive city in China in 2016 according

to the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Xi’an was designated

as a national hub in MOFCOM’s development plan (2015-2020) of

distributive trade and logistics. Xi’an International Trade & Logistics Park,

enjoying geographical advantage and transportation convenience, is

the largest comprehensive logistics park in western China and has the

largest industrial sector in Shaanxi. Total industrial output amounted to

RMB435 billion ($68.7 billion) in 2015, led by equipment manufacturing,

agricultural products processing and automobiles. The service sector

is the most significant part of the Xi’an economy, accounting for 60%

of the GDP in 2015 with tourism a pillar business of the city’s service

industry. The growing economy of Xi’an supports the development of a

software industry of which the city is a pioneer. The software park within

the Xi’an Hi-Tech Industries Development Zone (XDZ) has attracted over

1,085 corporations. With a large pool of human resources from the

100 universities in the area, Xi’an’s software sector recruits

around 3,000 computer graduates every year.

Today the number of furniture enterprises

in Shaanxi numbers 3,000, mainly in Xi’an.

In the first half of 2017, the furniture

manufacturing industry showed a yearon-year

increase of 18%. Additionally,

growth in the residential housing market

will bring new opportunities for the

furniture manufacturing industry.

The Convention programme promotes the design and application

of U.S. hardwoods for the consumer market (e.g. furniture, wooden

doors, flooring and cabinet work) while addressing environmental

concerns by introducing sustainable American hardwoods to furniture

manufacturers, architects, interior designers, engineers and real

estate developers from China, Southeast Asia and overseas. The

Convention enjoys the support of the Shaanxi Furniture Association

and Xian Furniture Association as support organisers in addition to over

20 furniture associations and interior designers associations and

Institute of Architects supporting the event. Over 400 delegates and

over 50 AHEC hardwood exporting members are attending. A minitrade

show provides an invaluable platform for AHEC members to

network with local traders, distributors, manufacturers, architects and

interior designers and contractors.

The convention programme features six keynote speakers

to deliver keynote presentations on “Wood and Environment”,

American Hardwood Exports to China”, “The U.S. Hardwood

Resources and Sustainability”, “Interior Design Application of

American Hardwood”, “New Technologies

and Design Potentials with American

Hardwood”, “Introduction to U.S. Hardwood

Lumber Grading”. The Market Panel

Session covers the development of

the furniture and timber trade

industry of Shaanxi, Taiwan

and four SEA markets

with an update on the

increasing demand

in the years to

come.

Thermally Modified Timber (TMT) is not new but TMT oak

lumber is. Or at least it is new in Southeast Asia. The softwood

industry and the rubber wood processors have been working

with TMT for years to improve durability. But each has their

own limitations of strength and stability and in some cases the

process has been partially successful. Up until now the American

hardwood industry has provided TMT material principally in ash

and tulipwood to provide exterior solutions. Previously almost

all applications for U.S. hardwood species have been restricted

to interiors, but not anymore.

Notable exterior projects promoted by

AHEC in recent years have included

“Room on a Hill” at Chisenhale

School in East London where the outdoor

play and learning structure designed by

renowned London-based architect Asif

Khan is made from TMT tulipwood slats in a

galvanised metal frame and a TMT ash deck.

The “Bostanli footbridge” and “Bostanli

sunset lounge” project in Izmir Turkey,

designed by Studio Evren Basbug architects

are made of TMT ash boards in a series of

wooden platforms that recline on a wooded

hillside all the way down towards the sea.

The recently opened Maggie’s Centre for

cancer care, by architect Alex de Rijke in UK

unveiled the first commercial use of TMT

tulipwood cladding.

However TMT red and white oak,

recently launched in Asia, is opening up a

new perspective in that it offers a hardwood

that looks like walnut – at a fraction of the

cost and in specifications that walnut buyers

can only dream of. Furthermore the treated

lumber is available direct from the USA

or locally in the region. AHEC’s pavilion at

the International Furniture Fair Singapore

demonstrated the point well.

“The opportunities for decking,

flooring, cladding, exterior patio furniture

and other outdoor uses are very exciting,”

says AHEC Regional Director John Chan as

the response to the pavilion was so positive.

In the case of red oak which represents

about 30% of the American sustainable

hardwood forest resource, any new market

is significant in AHEC’s efforts to balance

demand with what is growing in the forest.

In this edition of the annual American

hardwood supplement we have sought out

the views of both oak sawmillers and TMT

processors to provide a real understanding

on the material and its pros and cons. But

the photos should provide inspiration

to those looking for a new angle on oak

– one of the world’s most popular of all

hardwoods.

industry - in conjunction with

its support of the Hoa Mai

AMERICAN HARDWOOD

AHEC Regional Director John Chan and Rita Mak from AHEC’s Hong Kong office at VIFA 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City.

In Singapore AHEC has developed a

reputation for its recent iconic pavilions at

the International Furniture Fair (IFFS) and

this year unveiled its eye-catching pavilion

built of American thermally modified (TMT)

oak. This introduction is hoped to expand

the range of applications to include exterior

decking, cladding and outdoor furniture

particularly in humid tropical climates.

IFFS visitors were able to see the aesthetic

appeal for TMT oak and to assess its

enhanced durability. Two ranges of red and

white oak furniture by Singapore designer

Jarrod Lim were displayed within the

pavilion constructed of material processed

in Indonesia by Omega Mas in Java. One of

the furniture collections, which had been

launched at the IFMAC show in Jakarta in

September 2017, was then tested outside in

the Indonesian rain for five months. After a

light sanding, it was sent to Singapore for

the show, unchanged and thus un-noticed

by visitors, many of which commented that

the wood appears like walnut. The colour

changes and darkens with the TMT process

and has the advantage over staining by

developing from inside out, facilitating

sawing and moulding with consistent

colour after cutting.

At the Vietnam International Furniture

show (VIFA) AHEC featured

with its sponsorship of the

annual Hoa Mai furniture

design competition and

a prominent booth at the

entrance to the show. As

part of a major new initiative

the promotion of red oak

with the Hoa Mai displayed

in the adjacent booth

built with red oak, all the

furniture exhibits displayed

only red oak. In terms of

trends at the show, oak is

still the dominant high value

species in Vietnam, with

tulipwood (yellow poplar)

making increasing gains –

imports into Vietnam up

27% in value last year and

accounting for over 50%

of shipments. Talking to

several regular Vietnambased

furniture producers, the general

view was that VIFA gets better and better

and that this is now the show to exhibit in

Southeast Asia. A number of exporters and

distributors of North American hardwoods

also participated, including Gutchess

International, Thomson Hardwoods,

Midwest Hardwoods and Peladeau Lumber.

Commenting afterwards, John Chan

regional director of AHEC said “the

promotion programme will continue for the

longer term to ensure greater consumption

of these products, as Asia itself continues to

expand its use of American hardwoods.”

AHEC held a seminar at the GEM Convention Center in

Ho Chi Minh City during Vietnam Wood 2017. It was a showcase

of inspiring projects done by AHEC.

A sustainable approach

European Director David Venables opened

his presentation with the words, “It’s

all about the trees” and focused on the

sustainability of U.S. hardwood forests. At

least 20 American hardwood species are

available in significant commercial volumes

but Vietnam does not use them all.

Venables said, “Sustainability is also

about the balance between what we use and

what nature produces which beholds us to

select from a wider range of species and in

various grades.”

He also shared how AHEC is working

with European retailers to choose a wider

variety of species and with initiatives such as

the recent “Too Good to Waste” campaign

in Italy.

Opening remarks were made by

Gerald H. Smith, Senior Agricultural

Attaché, US Consulate, Nguyen

Chanh Phuong, general secretary of the

Handicrafts and Wood Industry Association

of HCMC (HAWA) and Truong Luu Nguyen,

president of the HCMC Association of

Architects.

Addressing the audience, AHEC Chairman

Dave Bramlage said, “You’ll learn a lot, see a

lot and I hope you will take home things said

and we can promote American hardwoods

through you.”

John Chan, AHEC regional director,

added, “There is increasing interest in the

use of American hardwoods for the interiors

and building sectors within Vietnam’s

rapidly-growing construction industry.

AHEC is hosting this event to educate

traders, architects and designers on the

U.S. hardwood resource, grading systems,

design potential, market trends as well

as its successful application in prominent

sustainable design projects around the

world.”

Exports of US hardwoods to Vietnam

reached US$240 million in 2017, of which

much was consumed by the furniture

industry.

European Director,

AHEC

Sustainable forest management by

natural regeneration with growth exceeding

harvest and mortality is the pillar by which

American hardwood is regarded as a ‘safe’

material. “Most species in most states

show net growth – a real measure of

sustainability,” he commented.

This is supported by a new online

interactive maps which provides data for

any commercial species at a national, state

or county level. He demonstrated red oak as

a case of under-utilised material.

Only four per cent of American hardwood

forest is FSC- or PEFC-certified; but low

intensity selection felling – most owners may

harvest only once in a generation – makes

such certification uneconomic. Hardwood

timber operators purchase from hundreds

of different landowners each year, usually

in small quantities and there are four

million hardwood forest owners in the USA.

AHEC’s response to lack of certification is

not to defend but to develop a broader,

more effective approach to demonstrate

sustainability.

For many of AHEC’s recent projects it

has been possible to calculate the time in

seconds taken for the forest to re-grow

the equivalent amount of wood used in

any single project. For example, it takes

Performance and design

Mr Venables also shared trends in American

hardwoods with new and innovative

applications including Thermally Modified

Timber (TMT) and Cross Laminated Timber

(CLT). The latter is now well-known for

the Endless Stair, The Smile and Maggie’s

Cancer Center—the world’s first commercial

use of tulipwood CLT.

In a demonstration of structural

performance along with aesthetic design,

Mr Venables showed the structural use of

American white oak for the barrel vaulted

grid shell roof over Portcullis House in

London. With strength class D50, it is roughly

twice the strength of high-grade softwood.

This enables more slender members to be

used due to its superior strength-to-weight

ratio.

For the future he predicted that red oak

will become more widely utilised.

The seminar concluded with a

presentation on U.S. Hardwood Lumber

Grades by Dana Spessert, chief inspector of

the National Hardwood Lumber Association.

& Wood Industry Association of Ho Chi Minh

City (HAWA), starts in October when entries are

invited and culminates with presentations and

winners displayed at the Vietnam International

Furniture Fair (VIFA) in early March.

AMERICAN HARDWOOD

The Objectives

For many years AHEC has been a lead supporter,

providing lumber for the prototypes, funding judging

inputs and promotional work in demonstration of

its longstanding relationship with HAWA. This latest

competition was no exception, with contributions

of hardwood material from AHEC members

Baillie Lumber Co. and Tioga Hardwoods Inc.

But further, the event is a complex cooperation

between HAWA, a panel of appointed judges, cosponsors,

manufacturing companies which assist in

prototyping, mentors to the shortlisted candidates

and a finalists’ display by the organisers of the VIFA

show. The 2018 competition was also sponsored

by local wood distributor Tavico, international

furniture hardware producer Hafele, textile

producer Acacia and the VIFA Expo organisers.

The 2018 Entries

The competition initially attracted 198 entries

from all over Vietnam which were reduced on

December 25 th to just 22 for the second round;

selected to produce prototypes for the final judging

in March just prior to the VIFA show, where the

winners were to be awarded. The main criteria

for the entries were to produce an item, or set

of furniture, predominantly in wood but allowing

other materials in combination. At the request of

AHEC the hardwood material supplied was only

American red oak, since it represents about 30% of

the USA hardwood forest resource but currently

is not so well-known in Vietnam, although ideal for

furniture making.

The Prototypes and Material

Supply

Seven manufacturing HAWA member

companies (Scansia Pacific, Khoi Lap

Phuong Xanh, Hoang Thao, HHL Decor,

Tan Thanh, Lam Viet and AA Corporation)

stepped forward to assist entrants to

produce their projects, while several others

arranged their own manufacturing. The

standard of prototypes has recently risen,

due largely to the increased assistance of

such companies. They range from one of

the largest in the industry in Vietnam to

some very small, modest manufacturers.

On the first set of visits to review and

photograph some of the prototypes in the

New Year, and to give advice on red oak, it

was interesting how different the first four

entrants were. One experienced, practising

furniture designer in the south had entered

five previous years – and won once –

wanting to continue learning the process

from design on paper to reality. One thirdyear

architectural student from the north

had attended a workshop promoting the

competition in Hanoi. A young woman from

Central Vietnam entered for similar reasons

and another architectural third-year student

from outside HCMC completed this diverse

foursome. All of their designs were totally

different and none had any experience in

red oak. Indeed their advisory supervisors

knew nothing of the material; stating that

they have little chance to see any red oak

in Vietnam due to its absence from the

market – something that the competition

seeks to change.

AHEC members Baillie Lumber Company

and Tioga Hardwoods Inc donated red oak

lumber to which was added a contribution

from importer Tavico – all with a range of

grades and dimensions. The lumber was

supplied rough sawn; with some veneer

also provided by the manufacturing

companies.

A further visit produced two more

very different entries – one from Dong Nai

Province close to HCMC and one from Vung

Tau Province, 130 km away - one prototype

by a furniture designer working in an

established manufacturer and the other by

a young lady graduating in industrial design.

Neither had seen red oak before but both

were interested to discover a species new

to them.

The conclusions of these visits to

review the prototyping process highlighted

several positive issues about this annual

competition. HAWA has truly attracted

entries from all over Vietnam demonstrating

its national reach. The assistance of HAWA’s

manufacturing member companies is

impressive with the time senior staff gave

to the prototyping process. Finally it has

clearly demonstrated the need for AHEC and

NHLA to provide practical training on red oak

if Vietnam is to become a serious market for

that species – one which European exporters

cannot supply with red oak being native

and commercially available almost only in

North America.

The Judging

The panel of judges is chaired by HAWA

Chairman Nguyen Quoc Khanh who has been

the driver of the competition’s momentum

together with his Deputy Chairman, architect

Nguyen Chanh Phuong - both of whom are

personally determined to raise organically the

level of furniture design by young Vietnamese

designers. The first panel of 18 judges

consisted of university dons, industrialists,

designers, wood industry specialists and a

representative of AHEC from Singapore. On

5 th March – just two days before the VIFA

show – the panel of 13 judges met at Ton Duc

Thang University to review the 18 prototypes

submitted and selected two winners and

six ‘Highly Commended’ using five criteria

– Functionality, Marketability, Aesthetic,

Creativity, Innovation and Eco-Friendliness.

The Winners & Awards

The awards were presented at the opening

ceremony of the VIFA show attended

by Guests of Honour, VIPs, Captains of

Industry, Associations Executives and

the Media – an exposure that may have

surprised the winners. Clear winner was

Nguyen Thi Huyen Trang with her ‘Giao

Thoa’ table, who received VND30 million,

and second was Le Doinh Chung with his

‘Roly’ lamp, receiving VND20 million. Third

was Ngoc Trinh Quach with ‘Emerald Table’

earning VND 10 million. Consolation plaques

were awarded one each for the most

functional, marketable, aesthetic, creative

and environmentally-friendly entries in the

opinion of the judges. All were displayed

at the entrance to VIFA, which has been

the most successful international furniture

show in Vietnam to date.

AMERICAN HARDWOOD Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

AHEC participates in trade shows around the world but hosts the largest pavilion at the young and

increasingly successful Sylva Wood in Shanghai. Lee Zhuomin explains why.

Sylva is Latin for forest and that is what

Sylva Wood is all about. The Chinese

market for wood products is moving

fast and Asia needed a kind of Carrefour

du Bois (specialist wood show in France)

to address the market. Sylva Wood filled

that gap.

The American Hardwood Export Council

was one of the first associations to endorse

Sylva Wood, encouraging members to

sign up for booths fast to take advantage

of what China could offer. With every

successive show, Sylva Wood sees AHEC

members returning, and returning again

every year.

Executive Director Mike Snow always

shows his support by participating in

the opening ceremony and mingling

Executive Director Mike Snow usually spends the

afternoon of the first day introducing the U.S.

hardwood forest resource.

with guests, followed by a 45-minute

presentation on the U.S. hardwood forest

resource in the afternoon.

During an interview at the show with

Mike last year, he said, “[Sylva Wood] is

very targeted and that’s what makes it so

exciting for us and our member companies.

We have more than 30 of them here and

several more that wanted to come but

there simply wasn’t enough space… We

will absolutely support the show next year

again.”

It wasn’t that the rest of the shows

in Greater China and Southeast Asia were

poor. (AHEC still commits to furniture

shows in the region a few times a year.)

It was the dearth of shows that focus

strictly on timber, which means the wood

materials section often gets lost among the

machinery and other services.

“Sylva Wood may be a bit smaller, [but]

it is very focused on wood. It brings people

to talk about wood and only wood,” Mike

stressed, echoing the sentiments of his

members.

The American Hardwood Export Council and over

30 of its members participated at the third edition

of Sylva Wood.

Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

AMERICAN HARDWOOD

Foresight

In 2015, it was announced that China would

enforce a blanket ban on commercial

logging of natural forests by 2017. As a

result, 40% of the country’s wood needs will,

and can only be met by imports.

Fast forward to 2018 today, RISI, a

Boston-based research consultancy for

forest products, reports that China’s

wood imports are expected to increase

by 60 million cubic metres by 2025, and

will eventually represent 12-13% of global

timber harvest.

In U.S. hardwood terms, the country

now accounts for more than half of

all lumber exported, a trend that is

unlikely to abate in the next couple of

years. The massive demand for wood

products predicted in 2015 had indeed

moved fast.

Furthermore, the renowned McKinsey

consultancy expects that as household

disposable income doubles by 2020, from

$4,000 to $8,000, the desire to trade up

will be obvious. Brand, quality and carbon

footprint will determine purchase decisions,

even in semi-basic necessities such as

furniture.

American hardwood in itself fulfils what

the modern Chinese consumer wants. It

impresses with its quality and beauty; its

choice reflects one’s sense of style and to

some extent, social standing; and more

importantly, it has solid environmental

credentials.

It is why the AHEC delegation is the

largest at Sylva Wood compared to all other

shows it attends around the world: China is

big business, Sylva Wood offers that niche

platform for engaging it.

It was the vision of both the organiser,

Shanghai Pablo Exhibition, and the industry

to build a springboard for wood suppliers

interested to tap into this vast market.

That vision is now being met, confirmed by

the popularity of the show amongst AHEC

members and their enthusiasm.

Lee Zhuomin is the Editor of the Panels &

Furniture Group of Wood Magazines. She is

based in Singapore.

The Handicraft & Wood Industry Association of Ho Chi Minh City (HAWA) is the one private industry

national association for the wood working industry recognised by the Vietnamese Government

in Ha Noi. Its headquarters are in a government-owned villa in District 3 of HCMC and although

located in the south, HAWA has members throughout the country reaching out to all provinces.

mong the many activities HAWA undertakes are training, providing market

information, liaison with supply industries, design competitions and communications

through its printed journal ‘Go Noi That’, which is also distributed online. HAWA

Corporation, its commercial arm, is responsible for organising shows such as the annual

international VIFA furniture show in March and another domestic show in the fall.

With close government support and contacts, meetings with ministers and officials are

regular events and one such had some interesting add-ons. Earlier this year HAWA hosted

a formal seminar at the Sheraton hotel in Ho Chi Minh City on the morning of 26 th January

attended by Guest of Honour Mr Nguyen Xuan Cuong, Minister of Agriculture and Rural

Development, Mr Ha Cong Tuan, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development,

representatives of the Party, National Assembly and Government, as well as company

leaders. The seminar gave details of the achievements of the wood sector in Vietnam

whose forest products industries exporting revenue has reached the $8 billion milestone

for the first time, increasing 10.2% compared to 2016 and three years ahead of the schedule

of the targets set out in the Forestry Development Strategy 2006-2020. Wood and wood

products have become the sixth largest export industry in Vietnam, accounting for 6% of

the world market share, ranking first in Southeast Asia, second

in Asia and fifth in the world.

Mr Nguyen Quoc Khanh, chairman of HAWA emphasised

the wood processing industry is focusing on modernising

technology, machinery and equipment in the direction of

specialisation and automation; investing on building human

resources to meet the requirements of the new industrial

age; building an effective business governance system,

applying information technology to business processes and

management. On the other hand, the associations and the

business community are committed to “say no to illegal timber”

by raising awareness of the need to establish a system of due

diligence for wood origin in the enterprise and throughout

the supply chain, to make the wood processing industry a

sustainable production of legal wood.

Following the event entitled “The Vietnam forestry

exporting target accomplishment celebration and the prospects

of the industry in 2018-2020”, in the afternoon of the same day,

the Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development,

Mr Ha, attended the opening ceremony of a wood processing

workshop. Following lunch, VIPs transferred to officially open

a new plant investment by AA Corporation in nearby Long An

Province where Chairman Nguyen Quoc Khanh welcomed the

Deputy Minister and Mr Ngô Minh Hải, Deputy Director of the

Customs Control, around a magnificent American walnut table.

Measuring eight metres long and 1.2 metres wide the table seats

24 people in comfort, designed and made at the AA corporation

factory. AA Corporation, a member of HAWA, is known as one

of the top interior decoration companies, a leader in the field

of designing and supplying high-end furniture to hotels and

resorts in Vietnam and around the world.

When the doors opened in Shanghai to the world’s second

Starbucks Roastery, created three years after the first in Seattle,

customers were greeted by a multi-sensory coffee experience

in an interactive coffee and retail destination like no other.

s customers step through the front

doors of the 2,700-square-metre

(30,000-square-foot) building, they

are greeted by the stunning sight of a twostorey

copper cask, adorned with more than

1,000 traditional Chinese chops handengraved

to narrate the story of Starbucks

and coffee. As part of their experience,

customers can marvel at the ceiling of

10,000 handmade hexagon-shaped tiles

made from American black walnut, inspired

by the locking of an espresso shot on an

espresso machine.

For the first time ever, unique, small-lot

Reserve Coffee which Starbucks sources

from more than 30 countries around the

world, including coffee from China’s Yunnan

Province, will be roasted in China by eight

highly-trained Chinese coffee roasters.

Customers can watch the green beans as

they are roasted, then sent through copper

“symphony” pipes (named because of the

musical sound the beans make as they travel

through them) directly to silos at the coffee

bars, where customers can enjoy a fresh cup

of Reserve Coffee.

The Yunnan Reserve Coffee, grown in

Pu’er in Yunnan Province, is roasted and

available exclusively at the Roastery in

Shanghai. It’s the culmination of Starbucks

ongoing commitment to Chinese growers.

Since 2012, agronomists at the China

Starbucks Farmer Support Center have

worked closely with farmers and the

government to provide resources and

expertise to improve quality and promote

sustainable coffee-growing practices. Like

the Shanghai Roastery, the Yunnan Reserve

Coffee truly is made “In China, For China.”

The Roastery is the epitome of coffee

and retail innovation for Starbucks in China,

the company’s fastest-growing market with

more than 3,000 stores across 136 cities,

unprecedented for any global consumer

brand and with immense growth opportunity.

Starbucks already has more than 600 stores

in Shanghai – the largest number of stores

in any city where Starbucks has a presence.

American black walnut, known for

its dark rich grain and colour, hangs well

with the multi-sensory experience of this

immersive coffee environment.

AMERICAN HARDWOOD Southeast Asia Supplement 2018

covers the markets of the world. With regional offices based in Europe,

Mexico, Japan, Dubai and Hong Kong, specialised members of staff travel

widely to events, exhibitions, seminars and meetings to represent the American hardwood

industry. All regional staff members, most of whom are multi-lingual, can assist with trade

enquiries, technical questions and communicating with the exporting members of AHEC.

Most years AHEC holds regional conventions – this year in Xi’an - to provide a platform for

networking, presentations providing updates on all kinds of projects and a chance to meet

one on one. Such events are free to regional trade and industry personnel.

Key AHEC executives from HQ in Washington DC also participate regularly at many industry meetings

and events within the USA, such as the annual NHLA Convention – this year to be held in Toronto.

AHEC can also be seen at exhibitions and trade shows around the world. Now AHEC has launched

a newly-redesigned website www.americanhardwood.org. This is designed to help provide trade

and industry companies, as well as professionals, to access quality information on every aspect of

American hardwoods and all the activities of AHEC.
