PLIB Partners With TP&EE
Hatton-Brown Expositions and Pacific Lumber Inspection Bureau announce that PLIB will participate in the Preferred Partner program with Hatton-Brown’s Timber Processing & Energy Expo (TP&EE), which will be held September 28-30 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore.
The Preferred Partner program is geared toward event promotions, and includes a PLIB exhibit at TP&EE.
TP&EE is hosted by Timber Processing magazine, which is published by Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc., the parent of Hatton-Brown Expositions.

PLIB is headquartered in Federal Way, Wash., with a Canadian division office in Vancouver, BC. In 2019 PLIB merged operations with West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau (WCLIB) and WCLIB’s partner organization, the American Institute of Timber Construction (AITC).
