In February this year, the newly created AFPA Market Development Subcommittee (MKDS) joined an FTMA workshop in Sydney, to discuss how the timber industry can better communicate the benefits of its renewable timber framing product in the face of alternatives such as steel framing. The consensus was that our industry need to be better promote the benefits of using timber framing with a consistent, simple and generic message. 

Following this MKDS continued to work with both the FWPA and AFPA’s Softwood Manufacturers Chamber (SMC) to develop a Timber Framing messaging campaign that is closely linked to FWPA’s successful The Ultimate Renewable campaign.
