The head of one of our leading forestry companies sees growth potential in the important Japanese export market.
Scott Weatherford, the CEO of ATCO in Fruitvale, just got back from a trade mission where a new five storey high BC-wood seniors facility was being displayed.
Also a brand new showroom has opened in Tokyo highlighting bc products.
Weatherford says big opportunities are opening up.
Over 7,000 seniors facilities are needed for Japan’s growing ageing population.
The new five storey structure has already won a design award from the Japanese government.
