Wood is our history and our future. We are established in the heart of the Charente and we have taken from it the values of truth, sincerity and respect. Over the years and through our development we have become the benchmark European brand for certified, legal Okoume plywood, and a dynamic player in certified poplar.

Every day our innovative commitments project us into a future which invents and builds more sustainable towns and cities, towns that are concerned with protecting the planet’s resources and the health of their inhabitants.

This is what drives us to design plywood with remarkable technical, health and environmental advances. They help our customers to build eco-efficient constructions, fit out shops, theatres, schools and beautiful, sustainable interior spaces, build and fit out boats, utility vehicles or transport, trains and many more.
