AUGUST 22, 2000 ---FXCH---
Whoever said money doesn't grow on trees didn't know very much about the forestry industry. Worldwide the industry generates revenues of trillions of dollars per year and increasing globalization means companies face an ever-growing demand for rapid communications and effective exposure if they are to compete.
Founded in 1995, forestindustry.com already operates within the world's largest forestry market - the U.S.- and as demand for its online services grows, its presence is extending around the globe. Even more importantly, forestindustry.com has been able to carve out this critical niche for itself because it is ahead of the competition. It is in every sense, a market leader and its influence is set to increase exponentially as it introduces even more cutting-edge technology and services.
Over the next week, over 100,000 investors will view this exciting profile of forestindustry.com (FXCH). ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
forestindustry.com (OTCBB: FXCH), established and growing since 1995, is the leading Business-to- Business (B2B) forest and wood industry dedicated portal on the Internet. With its highly skilled team of e-business and forestry experts, they have created an e-focused marketplace of industry professionals, businesses, and organizations that truly streamline this unique and highly fragmented industry.
The unprecedented growth of the Internet has allowed vertical communities to carve out an important niche for themselves in the industrial and commercial sectors they represent. These on-line communities provide an invaluable resource for individuals, businesses, and associations to communicate, transact business, and share information. Although the $300 billion North American forest industry has always embraced technology in processing operations, it has been historically slow to embrace available information technology to maximize overall corporate performance. Rising competition from foreign markets, pressure to manage inventory levels and increased government and environmental regulations have been driving industry to seek new opportunities to improve the economic efficiencies within the forest industry.
forestindustry.com is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the demand to effect this change through an on-line evolution throughout the forest industry. forestindustry.com is the first mover to leverage industry leadership and build critical mass in the limitless B2B opportunity in order to create a sustainable worldwide lumber and equipment trading exchange.
By providing a comprehensive range of services forestindustry.com provides a value proposition, which improves customer retention while expanding its own revenue streams. forestindustry.com provides clients with the most up-to-date in on-line services and has built a credible reputation within the industry with services that include:
~ Complete corporate web site development and maintenance
~ Site hosting and maintenance
~ Dedicated web servers and Internet connections
~ E-Commerce solutions (on-line stores) B2B & B2C
~ E-mail services
~ Basic, enhanced and high profile promotional plans
~ Custom-designed E-dentity and E-branding corporate site management programs
~ Banner advertising and press releases
~ Business-to-Business lumber and equipment exchanges
As a result, forestindustry.com has established an unequalled vertical community online that features an existing and continually growing customer base providing a mature revenue stream and affiliations with the industry's leading associations, organizations and publications. This relationship has enabled forestindustry.com to become the leading online destination within the global forest industry.
Though their website, forestindustry.com has forged an online community that aids business, organizations and individuals who use the Internet for communication.
forestindustry.com is the leading on-line convergence point for all sectors of the forest industry, including those businesses that provide equipment and supplies for companies working in various stages of timber harvesting right through to production. The forestindustry.com web site meets the advertising, communication, commerce, and information needs of the global forest industry. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
"HAVE YOU HEARD THE LATEST RUMOR ON WALL ST.?"
THE B2B LUMBER AND EQUIPMENT EXCHANGES
forestindustry.com will launch the world's largest Wood Products and Equipment and Industrial Supplies Exchanges and hopes to become the B2B market leader in lumber and wood products. And, once the exchanges are established as the online trading platforms for the forest industry community, forestindustry.com will generate additional and substantial revenues from commissions.
Why the Exchanges will work:
+ forestindustry.com already has first-mover advantage. Once any marketplace has achieved critical mass, buyers and sellers will make that marketplace their preferred marketplace. Accordingly established, there will be limited scope for future competition.
+ There is an urgent need within the industry for an exchange that will enable buyers and sellers to do business quickly and viably, without the added costs of a broker.
+ The current wood products surplus is around $10 billion a year. The Wood Products Exchange will facilitate global trade, significantly reduce surplus accumulation and add considerably to forestindustry.com's bottom line.
+ forestindustry.com's exchanges could also generate revenue by partnering with other corporations to provide logistics, credit ratings, supplier quality certification, dispute arbitration and financing services to clients.
+ forestindustry.com expects to charge both the buyer and seller a trading commission on the transaction price. As an example, a 2 percent commission based solely on the annual world lumber surplus of $10 billion, the potential revenue for forestindustry.com could be in excess of $200 million a year by capturing the entire surplus.
B2C SHOPFRONTS - Serving the Entire Supply Chain In addition to the B2B Exchanges, forestindustry.com is launching business to consumer online stores and offering affordable storefronts to industry suppliers. This will allow manufactures and suppliers to improve their distribution networks, lower inventory levels and cut costs. forestindustry.com will earn revenue both from monthly maintenance fees and from commissions based on all transactions. =======================================================
