First of all, the raw material (wood log) will be selected and stored at our factory/workshop. The raw material standards can differ between types of wood, but normally we choose the logs of maximum 1.3m in length and minimum 10cm in diameter.
Raw material storage
Then, we use a veneer lathe to peel the logs, in which way the wood is compressed with a nose bar while the veneer knife cuts the blocks into veneers that are typically 1.7mm thick. The first bit of the veneer which includes lumber bark shall be cut off. The veneer pieces are then clipped to a usable width, typically 640m or as request, for shrinkage and trim.
Our veneers storage after peeling
The veneers are now put outside in sun shade for about a day to increase their flexibility.
Veneers are naturally dried
The veneers are then dried to a certain moisture content of below 12%. Thanks to the gifted tropical weather, our veneers are normally dried naturally under the sun for 1 or 2 days until their moisture reaches the right level. However, during the rainy season, we use driers/kilns to dry our veneers quicker and guarantee the right moisture content for our final goods.
When the veneers have been dried, checked and divided into different quality types, they will be thin down and punch rip-teeth edges to help reduce the overlap between two veneers when being put together.
Veneers after punching rip-teeth
The next step is to sew veneers with plastic threads to ensure the flatness and to fix the position of veneers during pressing times giving our plywood flawless core quality.

Now, veneers will go through a glue spreading machine so a specific kind glue can be covered all over the veneers’ surface.

Veneers now are laid up on a conveyor to form the required thickness of plywood pressed later on.

Cold press: The veneers are pressed to shape the bond in the layers of the board
Our cold press machine
Our workers now will check the plywood core to see if veneers are properly glued and surface is flat, they will handle the defects before putting the core into the hot press machine.

The laid-up assembly of veneers then is sent to a hot press in which it is consolidated under heat and pressure. Hot pressing has two main objectives: (1) to press the glue into a thin layer over each sheet of veneer; and (2) to activate the thermosetting resins. The time and temperature vary depending on the wood, resin types and customers’ requests.

Then we let out the plywood core for cooling down, check the surface and handle defects.
Surface puttying machine
Then, to ensure the strength of the plywood, we will add layers for the core. The above steps will be made second time: cold pressing, fixing the surface and hot pressing. After cooling down, the core will be covered with a special glue to prevent core disclosure.

Next, we add a engineering veneer, cold press for the third time and sand the surface of the board with a sanding machine.
Our sanding machine
The boards are hot pressed for the third time to ensure the stickiness between the core and the face. To form the finished plywood board, the edges shall be trimmed so the boards have the right size as required.
Boards being trimmed for fine edges
Now, we cover the board with the melamine face as requested by our customers (grey, white, etc.)

The finished goods are stored in our warehouse and packed before delivery.

Along with the laminate plywood, we also supply other types for furniture, construction and package as follows:
Manufacturing process knowledge and control
The problem with mass production is that you cannot check every single product manufactured or sold. However, the problem will be solved if you can control the producing process.
As you may recognize above, our company has deep knowledge of both our products and the production process. However, it is only the tip of the iceberg. We have the ability to control our product quality through good and durable machinery, standardized process, well-trained workers and dedicated quality control teams.
We are also very proud to have been able to consult for some of our suppliers and business partners about more effective techniques as well as management experience, helping them partly reduce their production and management costs.
Finished goods control
100% of our orders are checked by an independent quality-control company (as requested by and at the cost of our customers) or our own company’s employees and a copy of the checking result is sent to the buyer before the goods are packed at our supplier’s factory.
In case an independent quality-control company is responsible for checking the goods, the result shall be made officially in written document and included in the export document for the shipment.
In case of our company checking the goods, we shall record the checking process and result (in pictures and/or photos) and send the evidences to our customers via email or a messenger application that they use to communicate with our representative.
Categories and methods to check for each shipment/order will be discussed in details with you before contract signing.
With our advantage in the relations with tens of forwarders in Vietnam and other countries, we are confident to delivery our commodity under all the terms as stated by Incoterms 2020, serving our customers in the best ways possible.
In general, we recommend 02 terms of payment as follows:- Irrevocable Letter of Credit at sight issued by a reliable/world-class bank- Telegraphic Transfer However, depends on the terms of delivery, we will establish the appropriate payment methods that will secure both parties during each transaction.
