We’ve delivered high quality and sustainably sourced timber for over 50 years from our forest concessions in the Republic of Congo.
We offer a comprehensive range of FSC® certified sustainable wood products from logs and primary transformation products - such as boules and sawn timber, to kiln-dried lumber, scantlings and decking - to serve customers worldwide.
Our harvesting capabilities and processing expertise allow us to treat various species and produce specific dimensions of logs and sawn timber to meet customers’ needs. Our five sawmills have a capacity of 350,000 m3 of input logs meaning we have the largest processing capacity for tropical timber in Africa.
We offer traceability, meaning we know the location of where the timber came from. Our customers can have confidence that the timber we supply is responsibly and legally sourced, and in full compliance with European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR), and the Lacey Act and the Illegal Logging Prohibition Act of Australia.
Our high-capacity industrial kiln dryers for certified tropical timber are the largest in Africa. These are powered by wood-waste fired cogeneration power plant - a first of its kind, and using steam makes this one of the most ecologically friendly operations in Africa.
We operate a moulding unit and furniture workshop that produce finished products and high-quality furniture. Our knowledge and first-hand experience of many of the challenges in creating wood products uniquely position us to support our customers.
Healthy & Safety
As with the rest of our business, the team in the Republic of Congo is committed to maintaining a “Safety First” culture. Our goal is “zero Lost Time Incidents (LTIs)”.
As a result of our continuous efforts such as safety training and regular hazard assessments, we’ve seen a marked reduction and recorded our lowest Lost Time Incident Frequency Rate (LTIFR) of 0,44 in 2022 with an annual person-hours of 3.75 million.
We work towards eliminating as many risks as we can which cause injury or illness.
