Furthermore, we take pride in being a certified supplier of Accoya. Accoya is a type of softwood that undergoes a treatment process involving acetic acid. This treatment alters the wood cells, reducing their water absorption capacity and significantly enhancing the wood’s durability, resistance to mold and insects, and stability.

Red Grandis is recognized as one of the most sustainable hardwoods worldwide. It is sourced from plantation forests in Uruguay, South America. The eucalyptus trees, known as Red Grandis™, are planted in large quantities each year and undergo pruning during their early growth stages. This pruning ensures the production of high-quality, clear lumber. Thinning techniques are also employed to achieve optimal dimensions. The harvesting of Red Grandis™ takes place throughout the year, utilizing the latest technology, and the rotation period for these trees is typically between 22 to 24 years.

Accoya, on the other hand, originates from fast-growing pine trees called Pinus radiata, which are cultivated and managed in forests. Once the pine tree reaches maturity, typically around 30 years, it is harvested. The raw timber then undergoes a modification process known as acetylation. This involves treating the timber planks or beams with acetic acid.
