Dare Global and PTP Group are two of the country’s biggest buyers of panel board making machinery. “As a major industry player, it is important for us to participate in WoodBuild China as part of our marketing plan. We have supported the event for four consecutive years and have found the exhibition a great platform for making new contacts and developing new business deals. At the same time, we are interested to source for new equipment and technology at WoodMac to add on to our existing facilities,” shared Mr Zhou Li, Manager – MDF Products, PTP Group.
