In order to go along with this strategy, the SME is looking for a steady supplier able to provide the quantity of wood wool required, and who must also respect the bill of specifications (which will be provided before any agreement) in terms of size, humidity, color and quality overall.
The company is willing to visit the supplier and share know how if necessary. Both companies must be reactive to each other in order to make the organisation of the production (from the supplier and the buyer) easier during the high season.
