Wood Industry Cluster (at the beginning Institute) is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 by 17 woodworking companies and two institutions, as a Wood Industry Development Centre. In 2003, the Institute was renamed to the Wood Industry Cluster.

The Wood Industry Cluster comprises a third of employees in forestry and wood-processing industry and the most important research institutions in Slovenia. They work together on various projects, which are chosen according to the needs of individual companies. The common goal of all these activities is to strengthen the competitiveness of the cluster members.

The Wood Industry Cluster has been operating together with the Association of the Wood and Furniture Industry at the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry since 2007. The Association deals with the industry policy and coordinates its members’ interests with a wider environment. The Wood Industry Cluster, however, gives operational support to its members, helping them to achieve their goals, mostly by the implementation of projects, integration, and internationalization.
