Let's start by introducing ourselves, Global Wood Import founded in 2008 by Niek Bouwhuis and August Oude Hengel. Now almost 10 years later, the team consists of 7 people. We mainly import South American hardwood for the garden timber market for both the Dutch market and the rest of Europe.
New products and the changing uses of Tropical Hardwood, which makes our job so versatile and innovative. The entire chain of importing tropical hardwoods, the storage and distribution in the Netherlands. We do everything in-house. Throughout the year we import container loads full of hardwood from South America and Africa. Decking, garden piles, sheet piling, and more different end products. Most hardwoods we sell directly to the timber trader with full packages. Because we have bulk tropical hardwoods on stock at our yard in Hengelo, we can quickly switch to the demand.
