Outlook for 2019
Numerous improvement measures to increase production capacity and yield were realized in 2018. For example, we expect harvest, production and sales volumes to be about 10 % higher. Thanks to investment loans from a local bank, we will again invest in road construction, forestry machinery and make some investments in the sawmill. All these measures are intended to increase our productivity and to achieve a positive business result.
Our ambition continues to gain a foothold in the local Brazilian market with sustainably produced sawn wood products. We are committing substantial resources for this purpose. We are currently still dependent on the export markets and therefore on long-term partnerships in our traditional European, North American and increasingly also Asian markets.
