Friend of mine who works for one of the UK distributors says that Accoya product is currently flying out of the door, picking up more market share! Let's hope the momentum continues...
Based on prices offered trades going through earlier today are buys although seeming like sells.
Nice to see the price recovering. Looks like things are starting to happen.
given up this thread, accsys must be editing my posts!

If you look at you will see that window manufacturers use new(ish) timber treatments that mean outside timber frames can last 30 years plus. Like I have said over and over here, its the price stupid. The Tricoya/Medite stuff thats interesting, mdf takes up water, when it doesn't its worth more. Accoya really gets it worth in or nearly in water, decking, bridges, sills, even flooring for bathrooms. Eventually, maybe not too distant future, this will sell, prices for timber are going up all the time, hardwoods that is, one day treated softwoods will meet hardwoods. The only problem is that hardwood doesn't take as long as you may think to grow, some species are harvestable in 8 years. It depends how thick you want to start with before you saw. ie: what you want this timber to make. With lamination you can use relatively thin sections and engineered is better than solid in virtually any application. Check out glulam for instance. my own business uses LVL cores in construction of stiles. Stiles are window upright sections.You don't want these to warp or shrink, certainly within guarantee periods. LVL = laminated veneered lumber. Its very thin
Surely it would be in builders interests to use softwood for replacement windows. Fitting Accoya or hardwood means they have no chance to replace them in twenty years. It would be a bit like turkeys voting for Christmas. Mind you whats the name of the MD?
asmodeus, no idea on medite sales sorry, bob5, don't beleive everything you read, if the majority of replacement timber sash was using Accoya the share price would be £1+.....
Brighton Trader - are you, or is anyone else, able to tell us whether "medite", water-resistant MDF, is selling well now?
I just got an investment 'flyer' in my inbox. Promoting this company. "This company performs alchemy Dear xxxxxxxxxxxxx, The path from a great product idea to a commercial success is full of potholes, a fact many penny share investors fail to understand. No company provides a better illustration than ACCSYS TECHNOLOGIES (AXS), and judging by a recent research note by the broker, Peel Hunt, the end of the journey is still some way off. I like companies with a simple business proposition. Accsys certainly offers this. Builders almost invariably use softwood, which is cheap but doesn't last long. Hardwood holds up better but is expensive, takes decades rather than years to grow, and comes from precious rain forests. So why not turn softwood into hardwood? The timber trade has two approaches to this. One is to compress the softwood under heavy weight. The alternative is to coat it with tar-like chemicals, providing a layer of protection against the weather. Neither is ideal. But, according to Peel Hunt, the majority of replacement sash windows fitted in London today are made from a new type of hardwood, made by Accsys. They call it Accoya. It has a lot of the properties of expensive natural hardwoods, but at much lower cost. Wood contains chemical groups called free hydroxyls that absorb and release water, causing wood to swell and shrink... and eventually rot. By combining the wood with a mix of chemicals free hydroxyls change into acetyl groups. This makes the wood much more stable and robust. Any child who has dipped a conker in vinegar has basically done the same thing!"
That's BT, I will contact you soon. Have a good weekend. Tight lines.
Spudders I am peter at
Hi BT, I still hold AXS but written off ever breaking even. I lack the enthusiasm to research this crock of ##### anymore as my time is best spent elsewhere. I would love to come over and cast a few flies within the next few weeks. I am hopefully handing over a house to my client soon, so I will get in touch and arrange a date. I assume I will contact you via rodeo rivers or I can put up my email if its easier. All the best, spudders
Was in Hong Kong last week and heard a rumour (good source) that Diamond Wood was going or had already, gone bust... Diamond was their agent over there I think in practice, a license holder. anyone still reading this board may like to comment, I am not doing the in depth research here that I used to do so am out of touch. Spudders, if you want to come over for the start of the brown season there are some good over wintered fish beginning to rise to dry fly plus I put some carp in the main lake to keep the weed down, these take a nymph and can be a surprise on a 5# rod...
Actually its the Shortbridge River that runs into the Ouse 1/2 mile above the Uck, and the Batts Stream joins on the property, thats where the sea trout run up into, and here too, some over 10lbs. There are a few surprise fish in the lake that will take a fly to keep it interesting, one is 70lbs bring a decent rod. You can contact me through
bt - Certainly will check in next spring, I assume its the Uck that runs through. Many happy days in my youth fishing Isfield Mill/ Worth Farm :)) Be lucky.
SPudders, you must have seen my flyforum posts as yes, I do have some lakes but I live there so they are not open to public but I do invite local fly fishers over. the main lake 8 acres, is stocked with browns mainly but has a good run of sea trout as its actually a dammed section of an Ouse tributary, the others are cropping lakes, mainly carp and tench and not fished at all, apart from by cormorants. Its closed season now but check me out in the spring when the dry fly is best.
bt- Yep still here with my heavy loss. Still hold though. Lost interest in AXS just check in every now and then. I believe you have a lake which you have stocked with trout, if its a day ticket maybe next season I could have a go at hooking a couple of rainbows, much more fun than watching the AXS share price. I hope you make a decent living from your exports. All the best, spudders
Looky, thanks, have been in touch, similar products in timber, slightly different features, pricing very similar. Privately owned.
brightontrader You should look at Lignia. Looks like a hardwood and has the durability of Accoya. I understand it is manufactured in New Zealand from the same pine as Accoya
I see quite a drift downwards, oh dear. Spudders, if you still visit this board, I live in Maresfield, was Brighton hence screen name) and also have a joinery firm, though not in Lewes, but down the road a bit in Guang Dong. I currently produce 3 x 40 foot high cube containers for the UK every 5 days on average of timber and MDF shutters, and now am making an engineered waterproof shutter in ABS, but our best seller is a n engineered MDF product with polypropylene coating, we are now about to make same product with a waterproof mdf filler and drop the ABS product because the cost of ABS is too unstable. The tricoya would do the job but it prices the product we want to produce out of the volume end of where we want this product to compromising and hoping that an added PP coating on "waterproof" mdf will cope.. I keep hoping that this company will make it and would like to use the products, and will when the price becomes more realistic, I will also invest in the shares too, big time when I can see this happen. Sadly cannot right now, management costs are still top heavy. Holland is probably the most expensive country in Europe to live, and staff costs there are huge. My manufacturing partners just shut their european offices in the Hague because of this and relocated.
I was involved in importing MDF when it first came onto the market, (imported from Zealand). It was a hard sell, as it was at least double the price of chipboard, slowly but surely manufacturers began to use it because even though the product was more expensive, different methods of manufacture were employed which made it cost effective. I wouldn't be at all suprised to find the same scenario with accoya/Tricoya. The other thing to bear in mind, is that uses may well be found for accoya/tricoya where timber is not currently used. With regards to window frames, when it becomes apparent that the upkeep of accoya over the lifetime of the window will probably be many times cheaper, plus it will keep it's appearance longer, it is likely to be viewed as a far supperior product. If it was all down to the price of the timber, there wouldn't be any hardwood frames. Am not yet a a shareholder, but just starting to have another look. Cheers Iasike
monopoly or virtual monopoly, presume the latter. If so there must be a reason why joinery forms don't buy accoya and that would be that its an extra sell because it more expensive. When I first offered FSC registered timber shutters I had to charge 15% more for the products, no one wanted to pay and my sales staff said they had better things to do with their sales time.Same thing. The marketing Accsys do must cost loads, always huge stands at expos , lots of marketing and management staff, maybe they should do what I did to become market leader, cut management, cut marketing and lowered prices, and let the price and product do the talking. When you have investors in high tech businesses that are floated its all about sizzle, or it was in the boom years, never mind the profit, how is this for a story, the computer industry realised that they had to produce profits eventually and this died down a bit, but not here.
