SAMARTEX NEWS

Our products are all sourced from controlled wood managed natural forests.

Samartex is sourcing the raw material from forests, which are known for centuries to provide the best quality of tropical forest wood.

Our modern veneer plant produces up to 1.000.000m2 veneers per month. When it comes to veneer production, two essential factors are most influential on the quality of the product: the experience and knowledge of the people who process the veneers and a sustainable supply of the highest grade of logs.

Having put in place a system that ensures the continuous development and education of our human resource based on one of the most advanced forest management techniques.

 Social Responsibility Agreement

  • Act 547(section 3E, section 20), LI 2254, section 11(D) provide the legal framework for the implementation of the SRA. Timber and wood processing industries are required to pay 5% of stumpage to beneficiary communities which are all within a 5km radius of our operational areas.
  • Samartex was already making such payments to fringe communities before the implementation of a more formalised and streamlined social responsibility agreement in 2004.
