Title: A Planning Guide for Small and Medium Size Wood Products Companies
Author: Howe, Jeff; Bratkovich, Stephen;
Publication Series: Technical Bulletin
Description: At the beginning of the 21st century, North American wood products companies are facing competitive pressure from numerous sources. Traditional products are being manufactured in new regions (e.g., China and the developing nations), and substitute products are being developed by competing industries (e.g., plastics and composites). The bottom line is strained by greater restriction of natural resources and the general rising cost of doing business. All of this pressure is stretching the abilities of the wood products manager to the limit. The times are changing, and they?re changing quickly. So what can be done to improve the chances of success and maximize a firm?s capabilities?
