Sustainability & Quality

Timber is a versatile and moreover, an environmentally friendly material for woodworking and construction applications. We have implemented a sustainable procurement policy, meaning all our timber is purchased from sustainable sources, from areas where sustainable harvesting is standard practice. 

We are committed to a healthy, sustainable future for wood products and only supply products that meet global standards for the sustainable production of wood products. That way, both you and future generations may continue to enjoy the benefits. You can rely on any timber products you buy from us to be suitable for use in your projects. 

Recycling

In addition to our sustainable procurement policy, we also take an environmentally conscious approach to waste disposal. We separate waste materials such as wood scraps, steel wire and plastics for recycling. Furthermore, the sawdust generated by our production process is re-used as animal bedding and biomass fuel. Through these initiatives, we contribute to the preservation of our living environment.
