Since 1903, Hout – Bois van Steenberge has been the leading international specialist in the importing and on-time delivery of raw and processed softwood, panels, modified wood and numerous finished wood products for civil engineering, the packaging industry and the larger timber dealers.
Our modern machinery allows for absolute flexibility and thorough customisation. We are also continually investing in the latest technologies, and provide our employees with permanent training so that we can always offer our customers the best service possible.
At Hout – Bois van Steenberge we also strive for the shortest possible delivery period and hands-on customer service, and as such establish ourselves as a trusted partner who thinks along with the customer and always goes the extra mile.
In addition, Hout – Bois van Steenberge is an FSC® and PEFC® certified company where sustainability is paramount. We use a conscious exploitation strategy involving exclusively responsible wood, the most ecological and renewable building material in the world. Our mission is to be an international ambassador of sustainable wood and to pave the way for sustainable construction methods.
Hout – Bois van Steenberge wants to strengthen its position as market leader in Belgium in the area of supplying traditional formwork.
In addition, we want to become the European market leader in softwood, sheet material and modified wood. We want to achieve this by means of a low-cost strategy combined with an ongoing search for products with a higher added value, an in-depth analysis of the purchasing and sales markets, and a strong investment in human capital.
In addition, we strive to be the European market leader in offering the largest range of certified wood from sustainably managed forests. Our goal is therefore to sell only certified wood by 2025.
Hout – Bois van Steenberge also wants to continue investing in a sustainable company policy. This is specifically reflected in the responsible approach to energy use and the environment, in combination with obtaining the necessary certificates and actively looking for ways to work in an even more sustainable way at all levels. As well as this, we want to push wood and sheet material to the forefront as a sustainable building material and continue to expand the ways that they can be used.
We encourage our employees to take part in ongoing education and training, so that they can always have a thorough knowledge of the innovations within our sector. In addition, we will continue to work to improve our operational efficiency and we will investigate the possibilities of guaranteeing fast exchange of information.
Finally, we strive to continuously optimise our range of wood and to keep improving our customer service, for which purpose we look to the constantly changing needs of our customers.
