Forest2Market was founded in January 2000 to empower participants in the global forest, wood products, paper products, biochemical and bioenergy industries to make exponentially better decisions through the strategic application of industry expertise and unique datasets.
Three qualities distinguish Forest2Market from its competition. Forest2Market:
At Forest2Market, we believe high-quality market information improves business performance, and we are dedicated to providing that quality on a consistent basis. With transactional data, industry experience and third-party independence, Forest2Market provides participants in the global wood products, paper and bioenergy/biochemical supply chains with business solutions that support fact-based decision making and planning.
Forest2Market has experienced significant growth since establishing its roots in the Southeastern US in 2000. We now offer solutions to forest products industries throughout North America, Brazil, Scandinavia, the Baltic States, western Russia, and Australasian markets.
Over the last 12 months, Forest2Market has begun a vertical integration effort with the purpose of building a group of companies that offer data-based business solutions across complementary manufacturing sectors. Fisher International offers data, analytics and business intelligence capabilities to global pulp and paper industries, and Tecnon OrbiChem offers data an analytics to the petrochemical industry focusing primarily on chemical intermediates, synthetic fibers and resins. This group of companies has a robust corporate structure that ensures that we are stronger and more durable together.”
