SMART OUTDOOR SOLUTIONS
We have been importing wood for 3 generations,
distributing exclusive brands of tropical hardwood, WPC,
thermally modified wood as well as accessories for decks
For the past 20 years, our sector of activity has been the same:
decorative outdoor elements, especially for decks, fences and cladding.
We distribute exclusively to timber merchants, building materials companies and DIY centres
Respect is our requirement for success. Nicolas & Béatrice Tant, as founders and leaders of the group, as well as Peter Derckx, director of the Benelux and German business units, believe very strongly in the key role played by people. In their opinion, respect for employees, customers, suppliers, and the users of the group’s products is the road to success.
Reliable products made to last a long time and preserve the environment.
Since our natural resources are limited, we must conserve and recycle them for future generations.
Our products are nature based and respectful of our environment and ecosystem. These are FSC®C003450 certified natural woods or WPC made of 95% recycled plastic wastel.
We focus our development to innovate long lasting and low maintenance products according international standards. Some of our latest innovations are for instance WEO® co-extruded WPC cladding, made of 95% recycled waste, a bi-material clip Cobra Hybrid with stainless screws for wood & metal understructure, and a new “Structural” concept : aluminum joist, simple and quick to install.
Our products are difficult to supply, store and transport due to their distant origins.
Exotic wood is a living material, available only in certain seasons and in varying quantities, depending on a specific area, the year and weather conditions.
It is very hard to have access to a regular and consistent supply. We can only provide what nature gives us, while always taking into account conservation and natural regeneration. Because tropical wood trees, in general, cannot be replanted but have to be regenerated.
Our warehouses are designed to improve conservation, with open-work cladding to guarantee good ventilation, sheltered from the sun and the rain.
For several years now, we have organised our logistics so we can deliver our wood and individual items all over Europe from our warehouses in Helmond (Netherlands) and Lille (France).
Our future depends on our capacity to support and meet the changing needs of our customers. Lower stocks, a wide range of products and a rapid response to needs in combination with growing demand for sustainability are the current trends.
We are convinced that our future will be based on sharing our values with our customers and suppliers: mutual respect, innovation and environmental responsibility.
Customer relations are at the heart of our concerns. Digital CRM technologies will enable us to meet our customers’ needs more quickly. Easily available and consultable stock, as well as high-quality, durable product brands are the keys to our success.
