TRADA: Timber Industry Yearbook 2011
The Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA) continues to be an internationally-recognised centre of excellence for the specification and use of timber and wood products. It is a not-for-profit membership-based organisation and its name is synonymous with independence and authority. TRADA’s strength lies in its diverse membership, encompassing companies and individuals from around the world and across the entire wood supply chain, from producers, merchants and manufacturers, to architects, engineers and end users. Bridging the supply and user ends of the market enables TRADA to deliver a dynamic programme of research, information and events through its sole service provider, TRADA Technology Ltd. This programme is put together to meet the needs of members, promote the specification and use of timber in construction and develop the market for timber and timber products.
