Accoya has a big boost in production coming

Accsys Technologies new Arnheim office - a rendition

Another shot of the Arnheim office / factory of Accsys Technologies

Accsys Technologies our supplier of Accoya have announced a big and very exciting new development with the plant at Arnheim. The plant is going to see a near doubling in capacity to make Accoya.  Below is a copy of the announcement of the expansion and details of what is happening.

"Accsys, the chemical technology group, focused on the acetylation of wood, today is pleased to announce details of a new agreement with Solvay Acetow Gmbh (“Solvay”), to refine the relationship

Between the two parties for the licensing, marketing and manufacturing of Accoya ®. This new agreement provides the framework and funding for a significant increase in the manufacturing capacity in Arnhem.

Solvay will purchase a minimum 76,000 cubic metres of Accoya from the Arnhem plant over the period from 2016 to 2020 (the “offtake commitment”) and as a result of the increased manufacturing capacity in Arnhem and consequent greater sales capacity, under the new agreement Solvay will review the optimal timing to construct its 63,000 cubic metres Accoya manufacturing plant.

The enhanced relationship with Solvay will benefit both parties, with the increased manufacturing capacity and resulting sales expected to be achieved for Accoya in a faster timescale than would otherwise have been possible.

Accsys will double the existing manufacturing capacity at its Arnhem site in stages, up to 80,000 cubic metres per annum from 40,000 cubic metres. The initial incremental 20,000 cubic metres capacity is expected to come on stream in mid-2017.

We have had some great jobs in Accoya this past 12 months and cladding using dark colours is becoming a common theme. Accoya just works so well with dark colours. We have some fabulous jobs underway in "pitch black" for example and others.

Our boardwalk job done a few years ago now is still looking a picture a recent few shots below..

La Rosa walkway a few years on, still looking great

La Rosa Reserve boardwalk a great advert for Accoya

If in any doubt as to how durable Accoya is check out the stake below, its been in the ground for 10 years and is as good as the day it went in!!!! Hard to beat.

SCION stake at 10.5 years

Supply chains are groaning at demand for key items. The growth in demand after the GFC has been slow and has seen a large number of sawmills here in NZ and elsewhere close and go broke. This is leading to shortages in supply as the remaining suppliers struggle to cope.
/imagesdb/Issue/b5dc470d-607c-417f-8cf4-bd6d27a1af74.jpgBuilding Activity
Data we see coming through suggest continuing demand for building materials and weather boards as an example are flying out the door. So prospects for Building Supply merchants should be okay.
