We are the only company on the Serbian market that manufacturespressed cubes. As one of the largest producers of EPAL pallets in Serbia, we have licensed our pressed cube according to the EPAL standard, which enables us to use this cube in the production of EPAL pallets.
Your company is constantly working to advance some element of operations and investing in the modernisation of equipment and plants. Is there no end to investments?
We like to say that there is no waste in the wood industry, only leftover wood, and we use it as an energy source for our furnace plants, in which we will invest significant resources in order for us to reduce emissions of harmful gases, and thus also environmental pollution. In order for us to complement the production process and maximise our use of raw materials, we have invested 1.5 million euros in a new plant and equipment for processing leftover wood, or more specifically for producing compressed blocks. We’ve also planned to install solar panels in the factory complex. The first phase encompasses the installing of solar panels for the production of 140 kWp of electricity, while the second phase is to install additional panels with a capacity to generate 80 kWp. In order for us to cater fully to the factory’s electricity needs, while simultaneously generating a surplus that we will sell on the market, we plan to build a large solar power plant of up to 10MWp.
You note with pride that your wood reaches the final customer via a chain that’s strictly monitored. That serves as the best confirmation that you care about both the local community and the planet?
Our wood is sourced from sustainable forestry, because establishing profitable transport and continuous supplies of raw materials is an important link in the chain of our production cycle. We know where and from whom we source our high-quality poplar wood, which we transport by barge along the river Tisa to the factory, as well as by road. We have an FSC [Forest Stewardship Council] certificate, which represents a guarantee that the wood we use reaches the end user via a strictly monitored chain: from certified forests, via processing to final production. The FSC certificate represents a reliable link from the product in the hands of the end user that can be traced back through responsible production and the rational use of wood, to the felling of forests that are under the strict supervision of experts.
