FIMMA Brasil 2019 will be the national and international showcase of the timber industry

The commitment to provide more and more positive experiences to exhibitors and visitors at the International Fair of Machines, Raw Materials and Accessories for the Furniture Industry (FIMMA Brasil) 2019 motivated its board to create spaces for other segments, including the forestry industry.

With great business potential, the forestry industry will have an exclusive indoor area consisting of 900 square meters in pavilion B and 825 square meters in an outdoor area during the 14th FIMMA Brasil, which will take place from March 26 to 29. The innovative initiative will present cutting edge technologies and processes for the forestry industry, taking advantage of the economic resumption of the domestic market and the good moment for exports.

The Boletim Cenários Ibá, a bulletin produced by the Brazilian Tree Industry (Ibá), indicated a 34% increase in the exports of the forest-based sector planted in the first half of 2018, representing US$ 5.5 billion traded abroad, showing a growth in trade with other countries: pulp (+ 43.9%), wood panels (+ 8.0%) and paper (+ 5.7%).

The forestry activity and the production chain associated with it are characterized by a great diversity of products, comprising a set of activities and segments that include everything from the production to the transformation of non-processed wood into pulp, paper, wood panels, laminated floors, sawn wood, charcoal and furniture, in addition to non-timber products.

For Henrique Tecchio, president of FIMMA Brasil 2019, the way the fair is organized and, especially, the context in which it is set in, has added other segments and projects that enhance FIMMA 2019 competitive advantage.

Consolidated brands in the segment have already confirmed their presence at FIMMA Brasil 2019, including Planflora from Santa Catarina, a benchmark for planting seedlings, and Planalto, a market leader in wood choppers, and the company from RS, Infasul, specialized in the development and manufacture of industrial knives and spare parts. Some organizations will also take part, such as the Center of Timber Production and Exporters Companies of the State of Mato Grosso (Cipem), resulting from the association of eight forest-based employers' unions. The Association of Forestry Companies of RS (Ageflor), supporter of the initiative, will also have a booth. According to Diogo Carlos Leuck, president of Ageflor, the opening of doors by FIMMA Brasil 2019 to the forestry-based industry is very important. "The forestry segment is promising and we are ready for it. Brazil has geoclimatic conditions, since it takes us one third less time for forest production compared to European countries. The goal of the Federal Government is to increase by 30% the forest area in Brazil by 2020," he explains.
