Partner Spotlight: Wijma

Bridge built with Wijma timber

Meet Wijma: A socially responsible producer of African hardwood. Wijma sources its wood solely from sustainably managed forests and proves that economic and ecological viability can indeed be merged. With over a 100 years of experience, Wijma’s large varieties of sophisticated timbers are used to build attractive and intelligent marine structures, bridges, lock gates, residential outdoor structures, noise barriers and guardrails.

“There is no more attractive or more natural way to link two shores than by a wooden bridge”. Wood inspires imagination, is aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly and Wijma proves that it can be implemented with low cost and unswerving durability. Depending on needs, Wijma is able to supply beams and rails in many shapes and sizes as well as wood types.

Watch Peter Zanen from Wijma explaining the advanced way their hardwood timber is harvested and forests are maintained.
