Wood Products Processing

We offer a comprehensive range of high quality timber products.

We offer a comprehensive range of high quality timber products from logs and air dried sawn timber to kiln-dried lumber and decking. We have two mid-stream processing operations – one in the Republic of Congo under our subsidiary Congolaise Industrielle des Bois (CIB), and the other in Myanmar under our subsidiary Concorde Industries Limited (CIL).

Congolaise Industrielle des Bois (CIB)

CIB has a proven track record in delivering high quality and sustainably sourced timber products for over 50 years. Our timber comes exclusively from our own forest concessions in the Republic of Congo.

Our extensive and responsible concession management experience has allowed us to gain significant knowledge, which means we recommend the right species and product to meet specific needs, while our investments in processing technology means we produce to the highest specifications. At each stage of the production process, we exercise great care to preserve the unique colours, strength and overall quality of the timber. Our logistics team ensures the cargo reaches its destination on time. 

Our four modern saw mills in the Republic of Congo have a capacity of 250,000 m3 of input logs and are designed to offer the maximum flexibility to treat various species of logs, as well as offering maximum choice in thickness and dimensions in sawn timber. Our high capacity industrial kiln dryers are powered by a wood fired cogeneration power plant and use spent steam from the cogeneration unit, making this one of the most ecologically friendly operations in Africa. Additionally, we have a moulding unit and a furniture workshop which produce finished products and high quality furniture for domestic and international markets.

We offer products for a variety of uses such as door and window frames, flooring, marine timber and furniture, with products which include logs, decking and flooring, wooden houses, sawn timber and furniture.

Concorde Industries Limited (CIL)

A wholly-owned subsidiary of Olam International Limited, Concorde Industries Limited is a leader in processing high-grade teak and hardwood logs from Myanmar. We offer custom cutting in a state-of-the-art sawmill in Hlaing, Yangon and process round logs into sawn timber and finished products from logs sourced only from Myanmar. All logs are purchased from the Myanmar Timber Enterprise, the government agency with sole legal authority for selling logs. 

We undertake our own process to document the source, legality and traceability to the forest area/district, covering timber we process and export from Myanmar. All documents are provided to customers and the process has been independently verified by a third party (Double Helix) and meets the legal timber requirements of the Myanmar timber legal assurance system (MTLAS).
