First, we toured the factory and learned about how plywood is produced. The tree trunks, after being carefully selected, are cut into equal pieces, then shaved to remove the outer bark. Next, these solid cores are fed into a cutter to cut into thin wood panels.

Workers select the required size wood panels and put them aside to begin the drying stage so they may reach the required moisture content. This drying process only takes a few minutes.

After being dried, the wooden boards will be put aside to rest before being sewn together into larger panels.

The next step is to layer and glue the boards according to the customer’s thickness and usage requirements, then it is cold pressed. The glue that Quang Phat uses is high-quality, odorless, and non-toxic to humans and the environment. It’s non-irritating to the eyes when standing at a close distance.

The final step is to patch the exposed parts, heat press, and cover the surface with veneer. Finished products are packed into blocks of equal size and transported by container trucks from the warehouse to the required location.

Noble Network is delighted to have the representatives of Quang Phat factory explain each step of plywood production. We also learned more impressive details in Quang Phat’s operations: 70% of the workers are female, the staff’s lunches are carefully menued and the ingredients are tightly selected, single mothers or employees who take care of elderly parents have additional flexibility in their work schedules, etc. These special benefits make Noble Network very impressed at how Quang Phat cares about its employees and workers.
