Products and markets
Precious Woods produces and sells logs and sawn timber (beams, poles, boards), planed products, and veneer made from high-quality tropical timber from more than 70 tree species. Main target groups are the marine and hydraulic engineering sector, garden, building and road construction, as well as outdoor furniture manufacturers in the European, Brazilian, Asian, and US markets. Thanks to continuous public campaigning by prominent non-governmental organizations, awareness of the environmental and social consequences of uncontrolled exploitation of tropical forest resources is increasing and leading to a positive change in framework conditions. This development offers Precious Woods – with its consistent strategy aimed at sustainability – a growing market share.
Thanks to its holistic approach ranging from sustainable forest management and timber production to marketing, Precious Woods promotes certification of the whole chain of custody and complete traceability. The procurement of additional timber products for Precious Woods’ own trading focuses on forestry and processing companies that are also certified. Lesser-known species of wood are continuously tested and introduced on the market. For that purpose, Precious Woods examines uses for about 70 different timber species and puts this knowledge into practice to satisfy customer and market demands. At the same time, this preserves the quality of tropical forests and enables sustainable economic management over the long term.
