Successful first workshop at new location
“Formaldehyde and volatile organic substances: the rules of the furniture market” was the title of the first workshop held by Catas, which claims to be the most important European testing laboratory for in the wood and furniture sector, at the new “Catas Point Pesaro”. The new Catas location is in the premises of the start-up company Manifaktura, who call themselves Catas partners.
The first event on 4 April was also the official opening of the new lab location. Many companies from the Pesaro district came, which underlines the importance of the topic for the furniture industry.
“It is just the first of many dates we have planned for this year in Pesaro and our headquarters in Lissone,” comments Franco Bulian, director of the laboratory. “The end of the Corona pandemic has finally allowed us to implement this project: To bring Catas even closer to the market-dominant companies and production sites, to share our experience and expertise in a more targeted way.”
Further events are planned for the coming months, among others on the topics of cabinet safety in accordance with the new strict guidelines from overseas and the fire behaviour of materials.
Much interest was signalled at the opening by companies in bonding and lacquering – Catas plans to develop a training programme in this direction.
