Production Process: Transforming Logs into Gabon Face Veneer

We commence by carefully selecting logs from sustainably managed forests. This ensures our operations have minimal environmental impact while contributing to forest ecosystems’ vitality. Employing state-of-the-art machinery, we employ a precise slicing technique that minimizes material wastage. This sustainable approach allows us to maximize the yield from each log, promoting resource efficiency. Every veneer undergoes rigorous inspection to ensure its quality. Any imperfections are attentively addressed, guaranteeing that our products meet the highest industry standards.

Through responsible sourcing and sustainable methods, we deliver top-quality Okoume Face Veneer. Our manufacturing facilities play a vital role in preserving the long-term health of our forests and environment.
