Being the only company which combines European forest exploitation and worldwide export under one roof in European hardwood, Manuchar NV harvests over 300,000 cbm of hardwood per log season in different European countries and exports to over 20 countries worldwide.
We also have our own lumber production in Europe, making use of resources here to produce tailor-made products for export markets.

Manuchar NV, wood supplies every step of the way

By controlling the wooden timber, from origin to destination, we add value for our client/partners by reducing supply chain complexity and thus saving costs for our customers by providing the right product at the right conditions.

Our track record exemplifies our complete full service in wood:

  • As one of Europe’s largest hardwood forest explorers, we buy standing trees.
  • Our own teams manage the felling and make the grading, ensuring that the loading of  40-foot container units inside the forest runs smoothly.
  • We manage the transport to major European sea ports, where we control all bookings, shipments and documentation for our chosen partners, up to CIF and more.

3 years of standing trees: our investment, your guarantee

To run an operation of over 100,000 CBM of exported logs annually in a sustainable and responsible way, Manuchar NV invests continuously in the raw material. Regardless of the market situation, Manuchar NV has a stock of standing hardwood and softwood trees in full growth to guarantee supply for a minimum of three years, from which we can decide to fell and select fresh cut logs for your specific demand at any time.

For every client, the correct product

Every client has unique requirements. At Manuchar NV, we believe in carefully selecting and grading the materials supplied in a business-to-business environment. With our vast experience in wood, we understand the different expectations of a slicing, peeling or sawing factory. We have designed qualities to suit common end-uses such as:
