Throughout our company history, WVCO has fostered important partnerships with industry leaders to better serve our customers by giving us access to the latest technologies and resources.

We are especially proud of our longstanding partnership with the APA – The Engineered Wood Association, a nonprofit trade association for engineered wood product manufacturers.

APA represents approximately 150 mills throughout North America, ranging in size and structure. The association is considered the “Leading Resource for Information About Engineered Wood Products”.

APA was founded in 1933 as the Douglas Fir Plywood Association, and was later recognized as the American Plywood Association. In 1994, APA changed its name to APA – The Engineered Wood Association to better reflect the range of products manufactured by APA members and the international scope of the Association.

Since then, APA-The Engineered Wood Association has helped our industry create exceptional wood products while promoting new solutions and improved processes.

APA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop national consensus standards for engineered wood products. To learn more about APA programs and resources which include nearly 500 publications, extensive research and technical reports, free CAD details, comprehensive market studies and more, visit www.apawood.org.
