Our mission

Our mission

Callens African Woods is a forestry manager, producer and importer of African tropical wood. As the result of sustained investment and our many years of constant presence in Africa, Callens has grown to become the leading company in the field of tropical wood. Callens controls the entire production chain of the timber, from the management of the forest itself, to the delivery to the customer. Callens is able to guarantee the quality and volume of timber you want at all times, delivering on the agreed date and certifying that the wood comes from legal and sustainable forestry operations. Callens is also holder of the FSC certificate.

This means that Callens customers always purchase directly from the forest, without middlemen and at very attractive prices.
