Our main business is intermediate trade of wood products with customers in third countries (except in Japan)through our worldwide sales network. In collaboration with our group companies which have factories, we can evenly handle the products of wooden board (MDF/Plywood/Particle Board/Sawn Timber etc) so that we can swiftly and flexibly meet the diversified needs of our customers. Based on this, our sales are increasing year by year.

We continue to add a new category of products in ASEAN in order to meet our customer needs.

Recently, environmental problems such as global warming and illegal logging have become international issues. In response of this, we obtained the Chain-Of-Custody Part 3.6 COC Certification Standard in 2008 in order to take action to reduce the efforts on the environment.
