WoodEX for Africa to take place in Gauteng in July

WoodEX for Africa will be taking place from 11 to 13 July 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand. A number of global brands have committed to showcasing their latest wood machining and tooling brands at the expo.

The niche biennial trade exhibition offers visitors and exhibitors the chance to connect and grow the African timber, tooling and machinery industries. WoodEX for Africa Organiser, Stephan Jooste, says the show has gone from strength to strength since the inaugural show in 2012.

“We’re delighted to once again be playing host to a number of global brands in the sector who recognise the unique and lucrative opportunities inherent in doing business in Africa. These exhibitors include: local wood machinery distributor, Newsaw, who will be showcasing a host of imported brands at the show; Polish leader in tooling, FENES S.A., first-time exhibitors, who will be introducing their own range of wood tooling and machinery; FOMA Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd., a joint venture between the FX Group, China FOMA and Shanghai FUMA; and Wood-Mizer Africa, respected manufacturer of sawmilling equipment and technology,” said Stephan.
