Greenply, being a pioneer in looking for sustainable solutions for improvement and development, has ventured into and established a manufactuirng unit in Gabon, in the west coast of Africa. This initiative is aimed towards restoring the ecological balance which is in distress due to the cutting and felling of Gurjan trees.
At Gabon, we have access to the timber known as Okoume, which is a substitute for Gurjan Trees, for making face veneers. Greenply is extending its reach with state-of-the-art manufacturing units and superior distribution channel in multiple locations, including Gabon. We, at Greenply, not only strive to be the number one in the industry but also set up standards for the industry, innovating and striving to create a benchmark and take the industry forward. Let us come together and create a sustainable future for plywood.
Greenply Gabon has a production capacity of 3000 CBM of Okoume Face Veneer per month with a thickness ranging from 0.2mm and upwards. It is also engaged in producing sawn lumber. The species of wood currently being sawn are Okoume, Tali, Padouk, Okan, Dabema and Movingui.
The facility in Gabon, West Africa (Greenply Gabon SA) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Greenply Middle East Limited. It has 10 hectares of land and is located in NKOK Special Economic Zone. The site is 30 km away from the port and is well connected through roads, rails and waterways.
