Interview, Mr Henry WESTERHOF, Sales Manager Continental Europe
As a major player in the European composite wood market, COILLTE PANEL PRODUCTS is exhibiting at BATIMAT for the first time thanks to Enterprise Ireland, which has given us the opportunity to be present on their Batirlande stand – the export shop window for Irish companies. Our two FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified brands, Medite MDF and Smartply OSB, are now recognized by public and private sector buyers and COILLTE is taking part in BATIMAT 2011 in order to present the various products in these two ranges to the French market. We hope to use this trade show to tell BATIMAT visitors about the ‘positive’ and unique character of our range of products in a market that is emphasizing the environmental performance of industrial companies, the creation of ‘green’ products, an environmentally responsible approach and manufactured products with a low carbon footprint. We are convinced that our presence at BATIMAT will enable us to forge fruitful contacts with future customers and partners.
