Wood Processing Value - Stream
We have three wood processing operations—saw mills, veneer and plywood plants. Once trees are mature and harvested, they are taken to our saw mill to be sawn into timber for construction, or they are taken to our veneer plant to be peeled and used as core veneer. The core veneer is then used as sheets, glued together to become plywood. Any excess biomass can be utilized as a sustainable source of materials for charcoal and briquettes.
Sawn Timber Value - Stream
We use state of the art saw mill equipment from the United States and Canada to create precision sawn timber. We sell the timber in bulk both domestically and internationally. Our wood is mainly used for construction, windows and doors as well as furniture.
Asante will own the first of its kind core veneer and plywood plant in Kenya. Asante uses specialized equipment to peel our trees, creating very thin sheets of wood. These sheets can be used in a variety of products, primarily as the interior layers of plywood. There is tremendous demand for our products in Africa, China, India, and the Middle East. We have partnered with one of the largest wood dealers and saw mills in the Gulf Coast Region and India to distribute our products
