Try Wood Co., Ltd.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
Kamitsue Town also encounters the problem of a shortage of successors for forestry. Our company was founded in November 1990, with the aim of training young successors who will maintain and grow forests, and of maintaining a recycling-based society centered on forests. We are a comprehensive forestry company that conducts forest management, lumber production, wood processing, and sales, and we have integrated distribution channels from mountains to towns. We mainly do business by direct sales from production sites. Our forest management and lumbering department makes use of the properties of sapwood and heartwood to determine the sawing pattern. Our glued laminated lumber processing department then processes lumber selected by determining the sawing pattern according to its use. 


[Strength of products/technologies]
Our TRY-WOOD panels are decorative panels. They are obtained by strictly selecting straight lumber and heartwood from the raw wood stage and hand-finishing each board while considering the balance of wood grain and heartwood color. Boards are mainly naturally dried and then finished by intermediate-temperature drying so as not to degrade the properties of highly durable heartwood. The boards are then laid side by side and joined together. This is why the area of adhesion can be reduced although they have strength equivalent to general plywood (floor magnification of 3, wall magnification of 2.5). Our panels are manufactured by widthwise jointing of solid boards, so they are characterized by being produced at low cost while retaining the texture of solid wood.
