Overseas Business

Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia has long supported worldwide timber demand. However, the supply and demand situation for natural forest timber has tightened up in recent years, with a decline in forested land and stricter control of illegal logging.
Sumitomo Forestry is working to provide a stable timber supply over the long term by increasing production capacity and through advancing large-scale forestation.

List of bases

East Asia

In line with economic growth in China, the local timber and building materials markets are rapidly expanding, and housing demand is also showing a sudden upsurge. As such, Sumitomo Forestry will take steps to respond to the growing demand for timber, wooden building materials and housing by strengthening its business operations and through regional market development in East Asia.

List of bases


The Australian housing market is continuing to expand along with sudden population surges due to the country's immigration policies. Sumitomo Forestry has entered the local housing market through a tie-up with a local housing builder. We are expanding our business as a housing builder with a combination of high-level construction expertise and stable supply capacity.

List of bases

North America / Europe

Being home to the world's leading timber exporter and large timber and building materials markets, North America is a major presence on the global stage. Sumitomo Forestry made an early entrance into the North American market, establishing a procuring and exporting infrastructure while also selling spec homes in the region.
