A bit of history:
The Engineered Wood Technology Association (EWTA) is a related nonprofit corporation of APAThe Engineered Wood Association, the leading North American association of engineered wood product manufacturers.
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.
Today, the organization 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”.
