The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Having participated in the recently held Philippine World Building and Construction Exposition or more popularly known as Worldbex, the country’s largest building and construction industry exhibition featuring local and international companies,  a group of local Filipino and Finnish construction engineers are ready to answer Filipinos’ demand for top quality sustainable wood products and building solutions. 

In 2008 the company Arctic-Forest Products, Inc., located in Quezon City, was born.  Wood from Finland is an alternative to the regularly used local hardwood because it comes from durable pine trees grown in the arctic conditions of Finland.  The most common native tree in Finland, Scots Pine has already begun to alleviate our tropical country’s challenges when it comes to wood requirements in the construction industry.

Wood from Finland is suitable for wood requirements in the Philippines because of its inherent durability, thus providing the best value for whatever type of wood or lumber requirement.  Arctic-Forest Products has provided many solutions in the Philippines to meet commercial, residential, and furniture industry needs, as showcased on their website.  They have branded this imported wood from Finland as finnwood.

The beauty of finnwood is that it can be used for a variety of home construction applications such as exterior wood decking, interior/exterior wall cladding, and load-bearing laminated posts and beams. Arctic-Forest Products has also been a leader in the construction of log homes found in places like Tagaytay. These beautiful possibilities make finnwood a great wood option for residential home owners, architects, contractors, and supply specifiers for large construction projects.

“We will be growing,” said Hannu Virtanen, managing director of Arctic-Forest Products Inc. “Our target is to be the number one supplier for wood finishing in this country. We are aiming at this direction. With this strong wood from Finland, we will also be in a good position to advance in our distribution channels as we expand our dealer network.” 

Arctic-Forest Products Inc. is the exclusive Philippine distributor of finnwood, available in Wilcon Home Depots around Metro Manila (Balintawak, Las Piñas City, Filinvest and Libis, QC).
