Sonae Indústria Group has held the exclusive European licence since mid-2011 and in December of that year launched the technology as ‘Woodforce’, a name that accentuates the strength and consistency of the wood fibre polymer product.

Since then Sonae Indústria and Scion have successfully worked together to scale-up the manufacturing and start commercial activity in the European market.

This licence extension was a logical step for Sonae Indústria.

"Woodforce has been designed for efficient mass production in an existing MDF plant", says Christophe Chambonnet, Woodforce’s global manager. "Our business model has been validated by larger compounders, moulders and OEMs."
