Nova is the vision of three forest product professionals,
each having extensive plywood operational and
marketing experience who have recognized the weakness
in the current supply chain of these products to Eastern markets.
Capitalizing on this weakness Nova presents an alternative approach
that provides this market with a significant improvement in the supply
chain with a combined improvement in both cost as well as delivery lead times.
Nova plans to bring the manufacturing process closer to the market
with products produced to order, effectively eliminating the need to
inventory a matrix of all thicknesses and grades. This concept is
easily duplicated in other areas of the country where the market served
is in close proximity to ocean ports.
The closer we bring the manufacturing to the market the better the value proposition.
Real reductions in both logistics as well as inventory carrying costs is realized.
In addition, the less tangible, but equally important benefit of order fulfillment
reaction, is greatly enhanced.
