Atlanta, GA–Since 1950, the Southern Forest Products Association (SFPA) has sponsored the Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition – the premiere venue for equipment manufacturers to display their products and services to the wood processing industry. Every two years, an international audience gathers to experience the latest technological advances serving the forest products industries. The 2021 SFPA Expo was held here recently at the Georgia World Congress Center. Approximately 128 exhibiting companies were in attendance.

Additionally, a Timber Processing Conference was held. Discussed was productivity and efficiency. The SFPA sponsored the presentation, which featured 12 topical presentations for the lumber industry.

SFPA’s mission is to advance the Southern pine lumber industry, promote the use of member products in domestic and international markets, and facilitate the exchange of information and ideas. The organization is headquartered in Metairie, LA and was founded in 1915.
