Opportunities Abound for JER: Delivers order, Opens Sales & Marketing Office

JER Delivers Order of Panel Boards to Virginia Manufacturer
A major U.S. manufacturer recently received an order of 7mm JERtech(TM) panel boards straight from JER's new Malaysian plant to be used for a recreational tri-laminate application.

This is the first known glued tri-laminate application using polypropylene-based wood-thermoplastic composite as the core substrate - normally plywood is used.

JER's product is more desirable for this application because of its unique properties, specifically its moisture barrier and cost performance. JER is also an ideal supplier for this type of project because of the flexibility it is able to provide in terms of availability of a variety of sizes and thicknesses of the product, which is not available from competitors.
