Vasto Legno has been operating in the International wood market since 1870. More than a century of constant commitment and specialized research in this sector have enabled Vasto Legno to become an International company and global business focused on processing, trading and distributing African wood. In 2007, due to their strong commitment and great determination to represent qualified productions and materials worldwide, Vasto Legno received the FSC® COC certification. Vasto Legno has underlined and strengthened its commitment in this area by obtaining BV-COC-003742 and BV-COC-103890 certificates.
With more than 70.000 m3 of wood exported all around the world, Vasto Legno is one of the biggest European companies commercializing African species. Internationalization is one of the most important characteristics of the company. Our powerfulness derives from both its commercial strength and active research all over the world. This has allowed the company to expand and establish its presence not only in Europe but also in the Asian and American markets where it has introduced its products and African woods species for specialized use.
Forest Stewardship Council® is an independent, non-profit making international NGO. Its members include environmental and social groups, indigenous communities, forest owners, wood processing and marketing companies, scientists and experts, who contribute to improving forest management throughout the world. The FSC® trademark identifies wood from properly, responsibly managed forests, in compliance with the principles and criteria established and ratified by the Forest Stewardship Council®, with the participation and consent of the interested parties.
Our mission can be summarized as follows:
- To manage forests in compliance with set regulations and to export all over the world the most requested species both untreated and semi-processed
- To ensure the continuity of species which today, due to the increasing importance of wood products in all its form and uses, are continually being requested
- To discover and promote new species: distribution and promotion through technical “know how”
