The Miro difference
We are a vertically integrated timber products company, planting, growing and harvesting trees, to manufacture sustainable timber products. We therefore have total control over our supply chain from seed to tree and then from log to finished timber product
Miro owns and manages its own plantations which are FSC™ certified. We produce seedlings in our nurseries, plant them out on our land areas, and then maintain and manage these planted forests until harvest ready.
We harvest logs from our own plantations using modern harvesting equipment and systems. These hardwood logs we transport to our timber products manufacturing industries efficiently located in and around our plantations.
Our principal product which accounts for the vast majority of our turnover is plywood, but to maximise the value from our forests we also produce finger-jointed edge glue panels, CCA treated electricity transmission poles, fence posts and wood biomass.
Our forests and manufacturing facilities are strategically located with efficient access to Atlantic container ports. We therefore ship our products globally and cost competitively, helping our clients to diversify their supply chain risk with our unique, high quality, FSC™ supply from West Africa.
