Bamtex® continues to innovate the utilization of bamboo with its new
decorative bamboo veneer, paneling and increasingly popular flooring products..
Our products offer a unique opportunity to provide a new design concept for the
cabinet, countertop, furniture, fixture and display industries. Alternatives to
timber as a construction material are being promoted to reduce dependence on
hardwoods. With its physical characteristics and ability to regenerate rapidly,
bamboo is one of the best means to replace hardwoods while providing similar
properties and attractiveness.
Environmental friendly bamboo, which is a grass, grows rapidly. While there are
more than 1,000 varieties of bamboo, we use only Mao bamboo because of its
color, structure, density and strength. This species allows us to use only the
finest quality bamboo for our veneer and paneling products. Our veneer can be
applied to practically any surface and our paneling may be milled in a manner
similar to hardwoods.
Bamtex® bamboo products are in demand by customers because of their unique,
simple elegance, as well as, their special grain and color. Bamboo has been
utilized in commercial and sport environments as flooring, paneling, display
fixtures and applied as veneer on walls, furniture, cabinets and doors. Bamboo
is gaining acceptance and growing at a rapid rate within the U.S.
The Chinese have been using bamboo for over 4,000 years. China is the largest
producer of bamboo products in the world. Bamboo grows mainly in South China and
covers areas in excess of 2,000,000 square miles. Historically, bamboo has been
used primarily for daily accessories, such as, chopsticks, cups, tables and
chairs. More recently, bamboo’s many attributes have gained attention and
allowed it to be used in a variety of construction applications as an
alternative building material. Bamtex® has worked with its suppliers to more
fully develop the veneer, paneling and flooring markets throughout the world.
Today Bamtex® markets its products in the North American and European
territories and intends to move into the Middle East, shortly.
