Estonian log home manufacturer RPM starts export to China
12. August 2011

Estonian log home manufacturer RPM Group is starting to export machined log homes to China. Currently negotiations are being held about the sale of apx 100 summer houses and several large villas.

First samples were sent to China at the beginning of June 2011 and according to Indrek Kuldkepp, Sales Manager of RPM Group, new orders will be placed by the end of this year.

Shangai Fineuro Wood Products Co. Ldt., Chinese distributor, has long term experience in importing from Scandinavia. The company has already contributed a considerable amount of resources into the project.

In the initial stage the distributer is mostly focusing on small and standard sized summer and residential houses. Considering the size of the Chinese market RPM Group has set high expectations in their further export activities, however, it is too early to predict business profits.
