Northeastern Loggers’ Expo Exhibit

NELMA continued its visibility before the northeastern logging and related forest industry audience with an exhibit at the NortheasternNE Logger Expo 2017 Forest Products Equipment Expo, sponsored by the Northeastern Loggers’ Association. The 2-day, 2017 event was held May 19 and 20 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. The Expo is the largest display of forest products industry equipment and machinery in the northeastern U.S., with over 250 exhibitors that attract an estimated 7,000 visitors from both sides of the border.

New Exhibit2Matt Pomeroy, NELMA’s Director of Inspection Services, provided Association information to exhibit visitors, fielding a wide array of questions that included information regarding NELMA’s grading services, the recent acceptance of Norway Spruce logs for lumber manufacturing, and the Canadian lumber tariff issue.

“This event remains NELMA’s very best opportunity to educate the logging industry about the Association and our programs”, Matt reported. “We always seem to make meaningful and important industry connections at the show.”
