New: Initiative Qualitätssperrholz IQS
Clear declaration of the face veneer qualities and surface appearance classes discloses plywood qualities and guarantees customers the proper plywood for the relevant application. Today's 11 founding and member companies of the IQS initiative – including Weltholz – have agreed to uphold fair competition in the market and obligate themselves to properly declare the qualities of face veneers and the other information relevant to plywood and label them in accordance with IQS specifications.
The members will actively see to it that the manufacturers label the important performance properties, for example, the quality grade of the face veneer and the gluing method used. The intention is to make the quality transparent for customers. Weltholz displays the Initiative Qualitätssperrholz IQS (Quality Plywood Initiative) logo, providing proof that it is a member and agrees with the rules and regulations.
The initiative is a voluntary alliance of the companies and open to additional plywood wholesalers and importers. It is managed by GD Holz in Berlin.
