Sumitomo Forestry develops and produces a wide array of quality building materials, including structural members, interior materials, and other special interior products.

In Japan, Sumitomo Forestry Crest Co., Ltd. has constructed an integrated manufacturing system handling the entire process from raw materials selection through product fabrication. To further enhance quality control, we have also acquired ISO 9001 certification for all our facilities and take sampling surveys for each product lot. In addition, we have acquired FSC®(*1) CoC(*2) certification to certify that we appropriately manage raw materials at the manufacturing, processing, and distribution stages to prevent non-certified materials from entering the product chain, as well as SGEC(*3) certification for separation and labeling. The certifications support our efforts to meet the need for environmentally conscious products.

Furthermore, we promote use of Japanese timber for home building materials in sales and other activities, as doing so helps revitalize the Japanese forestry industry and reduce environmental impact during procurement.
