Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

Scan­di­na­vian Impor­tance to the BC For­est Indus­try
Hen­rik Laursen has exten­sive expe­ri­ence with for­est prod­ucts and pro­vides his exper­tise and con­sult­ing in prod­uct and mar­ket devel­op­ment through his busi­ness, Dan­vik Mar­ket­ing Ser­vices.

The B.C. For­est Indus­try has a long his­to­ry with peo­ple from Scan­di­navia. This extends to Alber­ta as well, and fur­ther East. The indus­tries include: engi­neer­ing, ship­ping, log­ging and forestry to pulp and paper and, of course, also sawmilling. Be it Port Hardy to Vic­to­ria, Nanaimo to Port Alberni, or Gold Riv­er up to Tah­sis, there is a lot of his­to­ry involv­ing Scan­di­na­vians on Van­cou­ver Island. Same for the Low­er Main­land, extend­ing up to MacKen­zie and beyond.

A book was writ­ten years ago, titled: “Bull of the Woods.” Fas­ci­nat­ing read­ing, with many, let’s say, very colour­ful char­ac­ters. Some of them will be men­tioned in the pre­sen­ta­tion.

The cur­rent indus­try has sub­stan­tial­ly changed from many com­pa­nies on the Coast to essen­tial­ly only a hand­ful of play­ers. As most know, we have an on-going ‘war’ with the US over soft­wood lum­ber, as will be men­tioned in the pre­sen­ta­tion. This ‘war-fare’ extends all the way back to the late 1800’s. It may seem like we are ‘Out-of-the-Woods’, but not quite yet.

Date: Wednes­day, Sep­tem­ber 12, 2018 – 6 pm to 9 pm

Guests are always wel­come! Invite col­leagues, clients, friends and fam­i­ly.
