As part of the implementation of its strategic refocusing announced in its latest press releases, ROUGIER announces the withdrawal of ROUGIER GABON from its industrial plywood manufacturing activity located in Owendo (Gabon).
Following negotiations with a group of European industrialists, it has been concluded:
At the same time, in response to the overall needs of the Gabonese market, ROUGIER GABON will increase its FSC-certified forestry production in the second half of the year.
ROUGIER, through its subsidiary ROUGIER AFRICA INTERNATIONAL, continues to market certified okoumé plywood in Europe from an industrial partner based in GABON, with whom it has signed exclusive multi-annual supply agreements for FSC-certified logs, as well as commercial and technical partnerships.
Founded in 1923, the ROUGIER Group is a key actor in the field of African certified tropical timber. It operates in the exploitation of natural forests in Central Africa, in industrial transformation and in international trade.
