Turkish Delegation Visits Indiana

On Thursday (6 May) a delegation from Turkey arrives in Indiana to research the purchase of Indiana hardwoods. The group will tour three Indiana hardwood companies: Indiana Veneers Corporation, Indianapolis; John M. Wooley Lumber Company, Indianapolis, and Pike Lumber, Akron.

On Friday (7 May), the Indiana State Department of Agriculture will host one-on-one meetings between members of the Turkish delegation and Indiana manufacturers to discuss purchasing opportunities for veneer, lumber and logs.

Last year, ISDA traveled to the Intermob Furniture Fair in Istanbul, Turkey, with the American Hardwood Export Council & Hardwood States Export Group. On that trip, Indiana landed 35 trade leads for lumber and veneer for the hardwood industry.

Jeannie Keating, manager of media relations for ISDA, has more information.
