Firm sees demand surge for exotic timber
Dubai, April 17, 2010
The demand for exotic timber in the Middle East region is likely to increase over the next few years, said a leading company in the international wood import industry.
Green Resources SL, which participated at the recently concluded Dubai WoodShow 2010, pointed out that despite the current global economic down turn, the Middle East region’s construction and development sector remains the least unaffected - thereby creating a constant demand for key construction materials like wood and timber.
Green Resources' participation also marked its commitment to connect its suppliers of Western African sawmills with some of the top wood-based importers from the Mena region.
The company, which is known for its specialization in international wood and wood product trading with West Africa, showcased its 30 years of experienced trading with a wide product display of exotic timber including iroko, sapelli, ayous, samba, tali, okan, ako, amazokoue, badi, mansonia and embero, among others.
Green Resources also highlighted its line of high quality tropical timber based products like timber, laminated boards, rotary cut veneer, flooring, plywood and 3-ply profiles.
“Participating for the first time at Dubai WoodShow 2010 has allowed us the immense opportunity of forging new partnerships and creating business opportunities with the region’s key players,” said Abel Guilien Mateu, sales director, Green Resources.
“The event has become an important and strategic venue to help connect wood based suppliers like us with contractors, vendors and distributors, and we remain positive of the prospects in the region, given our confidence that the demand for exotic timber will increase in the next few years,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
