Atlanta, GA—Action continues as Woodworking Manufacturing Month approaches its final days, with new materials developments, technology releases, and live learning events on the docket.
Launched October 1 by wood industry technology and materials associations WMMA and WMIA, Woodworking Manufacturing Month celebrates an industrial sector coming into its own. Wood manufacturing is delivering thousands of products for essential industries that are also fueling a post-COVID-19 reshaping of the U.S. economy.
Following the Grand Opening on October 18-19 opening of The Generator, a furniture development lab and manufacturing site sponsored by SCM Group during the High Point Market furniture show, Woodworking Manufacturing Month hosts two more events:
WMMA and WMIA, owners of the International Woodworking Fair, engaged IWF to produce Woodworking Manufacturing Month (WWMM). Participating partners have been presenting a range of technologies that recognizes the increasingly precious nature of raw materials, the need for reduction of waste, and the shortage of available labor. Here’s a run down on what WWMM partners are sharing this month:
