Innovative application of bamboo composite in the trailer branch
Since hardwood is getting scarcer and more expensive all the time, Nooteboom is looking for alternatives for the production of their trailer floors. Bamboo composite has so far proved to be an attractive, durable alternative. Hardwood is very strong and exceptionally durable. However, it has one major disadvantage: it will become scarcer in the coming years. The trees, from which the hardwood floorboards are cut, grow very slowly; it takes 35 to 50 years before they are mature enough to be cut. Nooteboom only uses the top-quality timber from the centre of the trunk.
