Segezha Group Supplying Japanese Market with Glue Laminated Timber and Structural Beams

Segezha Group, a subsidiary of Sistema PJSFC, has begun supplying the Japanese market with glue laminated timber and structural glue laminated beams. The first shipment (10 containers) shipped from the Sokol Woodworking Plant JSC and was sold to the Sojitz Building Materials Corporation.

Segezha Group is manufacturing glulam products specifically designed to meet their customer’s need to adhere to the Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS). This certification is required for a company to be a supplier of processed wood products to Japan. The Sokol Woodworking Plant JSC was awarded that certification in 2021. The Segezha Group has complied with all the JAS requirements in terms of quality, size, strength classes, glue quality, equipment, and technology. This was confirmed in an audit conducted last summer.
