Founded by Jean THEBAULT in 1953, the company started with the further processing of Poplar a much abundant wood resource in the region, to make sawn timber for the local market. The installation of the first peeling lines in 1960 and the diversification in the wood species used such as Okoumé imported from Gabon and a few years later Maritime Pine accelerated the group’s national and then international growth.
