We enjoy working with our customers to develop and improve how our plywood is used in their products. Our comparative advantage lies in our deep knowledge of how wooden furniture is made, which stems from more than a century of experience in furniture production. We also benefit from our ‘closed production ecosystem’, which starts with our selection of raw material and ends with the completion of products that meet customer specifications. We want future generations to benefit equally from our natural resources, and to that end we strive for carbon neutrality in our practices. We are happy to share information about our progress in this important area.

It is very important to us that the wood we process comes from forests that are managed responsibly, helping to maintain our natural environment for the benefit of future generations. For this reason we only purchase wood from certified sources. To further lower our carbon footprint, we try to source as much wood as possible from local suppliers.
We are careful about our use of water, an essential element in our manufacturing process. We recycle the water used to spray logs and return it to the production cycle.
When working on a particular form of plywood, we use materials that come in the most suitable length and width in order to minimise waste throughout the manufacturing process. Biomass waste that cannot be avoided is used to heat our manufacturing facilities.
