About

We are a green-minded company

In our activities, we follow and monitor the principles of sustainable forest use and expect the same from all our customers and cooperation partners.

The Lumberson Group’s main raw material suppliers are responsible forestry companies in the EU and Ukraine. The vast majority of customers are medium-sized wood processing and trading companies in the European Union and the United Kingdom.

Company history:

 

Lumberson grew out of Russian Forest Ltd, a company that bought raw wood from Russia and exported it to European sawmills and pulp mills since 1999. In 2008, a majority stake in Russian Forest was sold and the company was renamed Lumberson. Over the years, Lumberson’s customers and partners have included large European forest industry and energy companies and many smaller sawmills and heat producers in Scandinavia. From 2008 to 2014, we exported approximately 180,000 m3 of roundwood per year from our timber terminal in the Port of St. Petersburg. In the summer of 2014, the terminal was closed and the company focused on investing in round wood processing, reducing its carbon footprint and creating added value.
