    About FIEA

    The Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA), a division of Innovatek Ltd, has since 1998 been running an extensive series of technical programmes for forestry and wood products companies.

    Programmes are being run, over 500 at last count, for both New Zealand and Australian operations.

    An independent forum for local companies is provided by FIEA to evaluate new technologies. Networking with other companies and leading local and international technology providers is also a significant benefit of these events.

    Forestry and wood products companies, largely distant from most major technology providers, can through FIEA, evaluate a wide range of new and emerging technologies suited to their own operations. FIEA is well established as a leading provider of technology transfer services for forest products companies.
