Our Wood

The source of quality

Welex is the world's largest producer of crane mats. To meet our customers demand, we process 30,000 m3 of wood annually. A huge amount!

We mainly use azobé wood and other tropical hardwood for our mats. We obviously find it important to know where our wood comes from. That's why we import our own wood, either directly or through specially selected channels. This cuts out the middleman to the source. Our wood comes mainly from African countries. All the wood we import, complies with the applicable EUTR requirements. The guidelines were drawn up by the EU and prevent the use of illegally harvested timber. Upon the arrival of our wood, we once again carefully check the quality of the product. Only once we are 100% satisfied we will proceed with the production of our crane mats.
