Our delivery fleet: Ready to go!


Only most up-to-date technology is used for processing our timber and plywood products. Only because we know precision and quality are the two most important elements of any mechanical affair.

Taking It All Off


Used for re-peeling of peeled cores and relatively small diameter logs of different species and grades, our veneer rotary lathe allows for the maximum use of materials.

The roller dryers of our veneer dryers uses a drying technology. Through the dryer's climate control unit, we are able to measure moisture content and ensure consistency in each veneer.

Putting It Back On


Using the core builder, (also known as a composer), each core veneer is jointed and controlled by an electronic detector.

This electronic detector has precise mechanisms, which prevents overlapping of veneer and cracks after drying. The glue spreader then coats an even layer of glue on each sheet of veneer, doing so at a whopping average of 2 veneers every 60 seconds.

Polishing It Up


With a firm frame and load capacity to avoid vibrations while working, our sander ensures the quality of the wood with its electric current meter that indicates work condition.

The meter helps check processing situations and serve as reference for correction. This guarantees that the thickness of plywood is standardized throughout.


At Sin Joo Lee, we offer a wide variety of plywood for both importers and manufacturers.

Poplar Plywood

Poplar plywood is a standard Sin Joo Lee product which is usually used for a wide range of applications. Its main characteristics are light weight, elasticity, good workability.

Marine Plywood

Marine plywood is a standard Sin Joo Lee product which has a permanent Type A phenolic bond. It is manufactured from selected species based on density, bending strength, impact resistance and surface finishing characteristics.

Hardwood Plywood

Hardwood plywood is a high- quality SJL product combining a beautiful natural veneer surface with a durable core, hardwood plywood provides the strength of lumber, but with greater efficiency and versatility. It can even be shaped or formed for curved applications.

Construction Plywood

Our Phenolic Film-faced plywood are available with smooth or mesh (reduced-slip) finishes. The phenolic films are impervious to water, the smooth variant being ideal for concrete formwork where the form is to be repeatedly reused. Paper overlay plywood also appear in the extension range. Substrates include Tropical Hardwood, Birch and Douglas Fir Plywood.

Concrete Formwork

Strong yet lightweight plywood panels with a multi-use, quick-release surface.
