The Leading Edge: The Originating History of MDF in New Zealand

Front Cover
New Zealand Institute of Forestry Secretariat, 2005 - 150 pages
MDF stands for Medium Density Fibreboard, a new wood-based panel product that has captured many of the traditional markets. Its development marks a turning point in mankind's use of natural resources, and future cities may be built in concrete but they will also be furnished with MDF. This technology to a considerable extent, was pioneered in a quiet rural factory in New Zealand. Pier Maclaren writes in an entertaining and informative style, and describes the people, the technology and the business manoeuvrings that culminated in this little-known New Zealand success story.
