was founded in 1993. Since that time, we established a trustworthy name
in the timbersector. We are purchasing the best timbers available in
Brazil, Guyana and Surinam for our Northern European customers. Timbers
are coming from legally harvested forests only, controlled by SEMA and
IBAMA in Brazil, by SBB in Surinam, and by Guyana Forestry Commission in
Guyana. Sustainability by selective harvesting is the key to success to
preserve the tropical rainforest for coming generations.
In 2000, we were the first to certify FSC®, an 800 Ha native tropical forest in the state Mato Grosso. Nowadays 80 % of our forest products are FSC® controlled wood and FSC® 100 %. It is our goal to trade only FSC 100® % hardwood in the near future.
We supply rough sawn timber, plained
deckings, underdeckings and other hardwood outdoor products. With
exception of IPE, ITAUBA an MASSARANDUBA, nearly all other species are
shipped Kiln Dried.
Michel, with his office in Sinop/Mato Grosso, is in
charge of quality control, in-time shipment and all necessary legal EUTR
documentation. Our main office, the sales department, run by
Henri Saelens is situated in Kruishoutem, Belgium.
Ports of destination are Antwerp, Le Havre, Hamburg,
Bremerhaven, Livorno, Aarhus, Tilbury and Rouen. Most of the goods
are shipped per 40' CTR's with reliable shippers as CMA-CGM, MSC,
GRIMALDI LINES and others.
We also promote
Wallaba, a high quality timber specie that is used for fences, underdeck
and shingles. If you want to see more, visit www.wallaba.be
