Accoya wood – The future’s bright as global demand doubles

Last Updated: 27 April 2023

The world leading manufacturing company behind the increasingly popular Accoya wood brand is set to increase its production capacity exponentially over the next five years. An agreement between Accsys technologies and Solvay Acetow will ensure that Accoya manufacturing will double its plants (currently situated in the Netherlands), producing 80,000 cubic metres of wood to meet consumer demand.

As this increased global demand for Accoya increases, the sustained collaboration between Accsys and Solvay is set to continue, meaning that there’s never been a more exciting time to treat yourself to a window, door or conservatory from Reddish that incorporates the highly beneficial Accoya wood.

Accoya demand that reaches far into 2020


While the eventual 80,000 cubic metres of Accoya wood is set to be achieved by 2020, an initial increase of 20,000 is expected to come into effect as early as mid-2017, possible due to the combined resources of both Accsys and Solvay.

Accsys CEO Paul Clegg expressed: “This [agreement] will increase the certainty of supply for Accoya customers and users whilst allowing Accsys to continue to develop global markets effectively, building on the expertise that it has developed over the last few years.”
