CABD (Compagnie Atlantique des Bois et Dérivés - Atlantic Timber and Derivatives Company) was founded in 1980 to develop trade in logs from West African tropical forests, notably the Ivory Coast.
The company’s activities rapidly expanded into Liberia, Gabon, the DRC, Cameroon, the CAR and the Republic of Congo.
In 1995 the company set up a subsidiary (CPF) to participate in industrialisation of logging operations and transfer of European industries to this region.
Its engineering activity Bois Industrie, together with CABD, enables it to be a player in both upstream and downstream timber industries.
A planing facility in the port of La Pallice (La Rochelle, France) completes a broad business, in which log trade has become subsidiary to primary processing, with the company now moving towards secondary processing, sawn, dried, planed and finger-jointed timber products.
CABD has developed links with merchant-importers and industrial designers throughout its sector.
