New wood treatment plant in Zimbabwe

Arch Wood Protection (SA) (Pty) Ltd, a Lonza Company, has recently completed the installation of the largest CCA treatment plant in Zimbabwe for The Wattle Company. The plant, with a minimum capacity of about 110m³ per shift, falls in line with The Wattle Company’s decision to expand into the treatment sector and establish a state-of-the-art treatment plant.  The Wattle Company project director, Joseph Musemwa, explained the decision to use the services of Arch Wood Protection. “We particularly wanted to take advantage of Arch’s experience in the design and installation of CCA treatment plants. The supply of ‘everything under one roof’: the plant design, installation, commissioning, training, the chemicals and after-sales service, was a huge draw card as well. Being new to the treatment sector, we believed it was a sound decision to enter the market with the expert backing of Arch in order to market our products as effectively as possible and to support our application for ISO 9001 certification.”
