With WoodEX for Africa 2018 around the corner, the who’s who in the timber sector is gearing up for the fifth edition of this much-anticipated biennial trade show.

Set to wow the woodworking machinery, tooling, and products sector from 11 to 13 July 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg, WoodEX is the largest exhibition in Africa dedicated exclusively to the timber trade and features the added facet of the launch edition of the Deck & Flooring Expo.

With the support of strategic industry partners, WoodEX offers a unique business and networking platform to connect, unify and grow the African timber, tooling and machinery markets, while showcasing innovative timber and woodworking products and services. These include woodworking machinery, fixtures and fittings, decking, flooring, structural timber, timber preservatives and treatment, sawmilling and logging, pulp and paper manufacturing and wood material and veneer production, and more.

“With the final days of show preparation upon us, we are proud to have secured unrivalled commitment from the industry at large for the biggest trade expo in Africa dedicated exclusively to the wood industry. The fifth edition of WoodEX for Africa will house all the industry leaders in the trade and exhibitors from across the world, from newcomers to the industry, market staples, technological innovations and the biggest local and international players in the woodworking sector,” says Stephan Jooste, WoodEX organiser.

“We are pleased to welcome yet more new exhibitors to our show, among whom are the likes of AluSmart Machinery, CMC Woodworking Machinery, Dieffenbacher, Geerlings, Harris Sawing Equipment, Hintech Manufacturing, Holtec, Lunawood, Pearlman Veneers, Promob, REM, Roos Woodworking Machinery, Rubio Monocoat, SJM Distributors, Upper Edge Products, Vantec and WoodTech Mechatronics,” he says.

“Having proven over the years that we bring the right type of visitors to the show, such as decision-makers and individuals with buying power looking for the right business opportunities, new products, materials and machinery to boost their profits, we look forward to hosting another memorable WoodEX for Africa this year and to offering visitors and exhibitors alike the opportunity to gather insights, do business, build networks and delight in a smorgasbord of woodworking and related equipment, machinery, tooling and services on show,” Jooste concludes.
