We are utilizing our wood resources at a very high rate now but there are still room for improvement. Our other aim is to achieve total dust and noise free environment in all our mills.
Through improvement on data processing and analysis on the current system, this will achieve a more transparent and organized production control. It serves the purpose of getting better and effective results. Our future plan includes the possibility of using “Fully Automated” production lines which will guarantee quality and volume sustainability.
