Hardwood Flooring Mills in Dalian, PR China
Pictures taken Sept. 14-15, 2001 during Dave's tour of Dalian on NE China coast

Located on the NE coast of China, Dalian is about an hour flight from Beijing. Thanks to Iris Yang and Edward Li of Alliance Trading Co., Ltd for arranging tours of hardwood flooring manufacturers in the area. Jeff Meltzer of Universal Hardwood accompanied me on the trip. We visited three solid wood flooring mills: Dalian Jiayang Wood Products, Caddie Woodwork, and ITMC. We also toured one engineered factory: Dalian Sanlin Wooden Product Company. Special thanks to Edward for acting as guide and translator. - Dave Spreen
