Wood as the sustainable raw material of the future

The significance of forests as valuable ecosystems for the preservation of natural living conditions for humanity. Their role in reducing the greenhouse effect is recognized and has been implemented politically in the Kyoto protocol. Nature produces wood in the forests, and forestry makes it available sustainably. Wood is a store of carbon and energy, a substitute for greenhouse-inducing materials and energy sources, protects fossil resources, and meets the requirements for intelligent cyclic economies.

Wood is neutral in the Co2-Cycle: The amount of Co2 taken up during photosynthesis is released again when the wood rots or burns.

Wood is 100% usable; there are no waste products. In addition, since we buy our raw material in the sustainably managed forests around our sawmill. This avoids long transportation distances.


Thanks to our central location near the borders, our direct proximity to the most important freeways in Europe, we can reach a wide range of locations in central Europe. Proximity to Antwerp and the interior harbours gives us an unbeatable advantage in the export market.

Shippers recognize these advantages. We are very interested in further contact. Let us know; our destinations might also interest you.
