Meeting the Demands of Increased Housing Starts

During a time when many industries are facing record setbacks, the housing sector is proving to be one of the few that’s thriving. What started as a predicted slowdown at the onset of the pandemic has transitioned into a steady increase in homebuilding. In June, housing starts increased more than 17% over May, totaling 1.22 million. That number increased in July to 1.496 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau monthly report. 

As home construction continues to accelerate, so does the demand for wood products, and the need for reliable, efficient wood coding and marking. Due to strict and specific laws around wood traceability, it’s critical that manufacturers partner with a technology provider that has extensive coding capabilities and can print clearly on a variety of surfaces under the harshest of conditions. 

That’s where REA JET comes in. We have a wide selection of printers used by the world’s best in the construction industry. Our large character and high resolution printers, as well as our contact-free wood marking lasers, are specifically designed to operate under harsh conditions to provide clear and legible coding and marking.

No matter the scale of the construction project, the timber material, or the strictness of regulations, REA JET has a trusted solution to meet your specific needs.
