Rougier and Gabon Special Economic Zone (GSEZ) are announcing the signature of a major contract to supply logs for the processing units located in Gabon's Nkok Special Economic Zone. This partnership agreement will make it possible to take significant steps forward with the development of the processing of timber resources in Gabon.
Under the terms of this agreement, Rougier will supply okoume logs for industrial firms in the Special Economic Zone, which GSEZ is responsible for developing and managing. Rougier has made a commitment to deliver 110,000 cubic metres of okoume annually, for a 7-year period.
The okoume logs supplied by Rougier will enable the industrial operators based in the Nkok SEZ to make progress with the secondary and tertiary processing of timber, particularly for peeling construction materials, doors and windows, furniture, etc.
Founded in 1923, the Rougier Group is a market leader for certified African tropical timber.
