Upstream Timber Operations

The Samling Group carries out best practices across our operations from timber extraction and processing, to the manufacture and sale of a wide range of high-quality wood products.

The Group stewards forest resources in strategic locations within Asia-Pacific enabling our team to efficiently access key international markets, including Japan, China, India, Europe and North America.

In Malaysia the Group has forest concessions that it operates and the manufacturing facilities are situated in the Baram Region, the Lawas Region and the Bintulu Region. All our logs are legally extracted under the system known as “Sarawak Timber Legality Verification System (STLVS)” and our concessions are certified by third party auditors. STLVS is a system that covers the process of licensing, harvesting, transporting, manufacturing and trading of logs and timber products regulated by existing laws, procedures and policies that govern forests and timber trade in the state. The Group has been granted 14 natural tropical forest concessions in Malaysia amounting to 1.2 million hectares of land.
