Green Resources SL, a leading company in the international wood import industry, has expressed optimism that the demand for exotic timber in the Middle East region is likely to increase over the next few years. The company, which is making its debut at the ‘Dubai WoodShow 2010’, has 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 SL’s participation also marks the company’s commitment to connect its suppliers of Western African sawmills with some of the top wood-based importers from the Middle East and North African region (MENA).

The company, which is known for its specialization in international wood and wood product trading with West Africa, is currently showcasing 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, embero, boda, bosse, bubinga, dabema, emien, etimoe, eyong, frake, okoume, limbali, agba, izombe and azobe. Green Resources SL is also highlighting its current line of high quality tropical timber based products like timber, laminated boards, rotary cut veneer, flooring, plywood and 3-ply profiles. The company has an average annual turnover of EUR 19 million and sources its supply of exotic timber from tropical countries like the Ivory Coast, Cameroon, the Republic of Congo and Gabon.

“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 SL. “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.”
