Imported Lumber / Purchasing and Sales, Lumber Exporting

We import logs and lumber directly from the Russian Far East, North America, Europe, South Sea Islands, China, Vietnam, Chile, and New Zealand. We purchase a wide range of products, both from Japan and overseas, and carry a diverse lineup that allows us to support a range of needs. We have recently opened up sales companies in Vietnam and Indonesia to allow us to respond to the detailed requests of our clients. We are also expanding our interests in overseas commercial lumber, including establishing a manufacturing plant in Myanmar.

Plantation timber is used for pallets and
cable drums as well

Radiata pine products from plantation forests are regularly imported and sold from Pan Pac Forest Products (New Zealand), owned by the Oji Group. These products are used, along with larch wood from Hokkaido, to make pallets and cable drums and other items, contributing to distribution in Japan and overseas.

Housing and Construction Materials Sales

Modern housing is seeing an increasing demand for engineering wood (types of processed timber). We carry out research and development, and commercialization, of a range of engineering woods, including laminated softwoods like red and white woods from Northern Europe or red pine from Russia, and laminated woods from planted forests in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and China.

Production and sales of chips for paper and fuel

The effective use of wood resources such as unused timber left on the hillsides, waste timber from sawmills, and recycling demolished house materials is expanding nationwide. These are supplied to paper companies, including those of the Oji Group, as well as to newly established boilers for generating electricity from biomass.
