STRATHROY, Ontario – The Sansin Corp., a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, is expanding operations in Europe and the United States. The company's products have been used in many acclaimed projects such as the Tsawwassen Youth Center in Tsawwassen, B.C. as showcased in WoodworkingNetwork.com
The family-owned company, which is headquartered in Ontario, Canada, has opened a new facility, located in the Netherlands, that will be the European hub for sales, operations and distribution. Jan Willem Bos was named managing director of the European facility that will be operating under the name TimberTek Solutions B.V.
A European sales and operations team will be formed to service dealers, OEMs and architectural projects with product, samples and custom requests.
Sansin is simultaneously starting up a manufacturing, distribution and sales location in the U.S. under the Sansin America Inc. name, with plans to be fully operational by spring 2023. The facility will support future product development and finishing operations.
“Demand for wood in building construction has risen quickly and is expected to grow at a rapid pace as architects, building owners and consumers consider wood to be the most sustainable building material. With this growth comes increasing market demand for Sansin’s high-performance, water-borne wood protection products that are penetrating, environmentally friendly and durable,” said Sansin’s managing director Sjoerd Bos.
The new locations will help service the company’s current and growing global customer base. “For more than 35 years, our passion has been protecting and beautifying wood. Increased use of wood globally is not just good for the industry at large, but also good for our planet; so, we see this as a positive for more than just our company,” explained Bos.
