Main development areas

Rougier expands and develops thanks to its great ability to anticipate and adapt to major changes in the timber industry: establishing in Africa in 1952, responsible forest management from 1994, FSC® certification and industrialisation during the recent years.

The increasing industrialisation of productions

Rougier invests in Africa on a regular basis with the purpose of optimising the group’s industrial efficiency while increasing added value to raw materials. Over the past four years, the group has strengthened this strategy, notably in Gabon where the log export ban clearly shows the government’s will to promote locally-made added value.


Good forest management certification

Anticipating the growing demand for wood products in accordance with the highest environmental standards, Rougier initiated many years ago a voluntary process of certification concerning its forestry and industrial activities. The certification process, audited by a third party independent expert, guarantees that Rougier products, services or procedures are in compliance with the most demanding international standards, such as FSC®.


Product and market diversification

Rougier is developing its business according to the dynamics of product and market diversification. This strategy relies on a dedicated trade organisation highly attentive to market changes.
