We have come a long way since our founding in 2003. Other companies have joined forces with our company Wotan Forest, a.s., and so, as time has passed, we have grown and expanded our scope of activity into other wood industries.
A significant step for us was the purchase of our shares by AGROFERT, a.s. in 2011. This way we became a member of the AGROFERT Group and gained a stable background for the growth and development of our company.
In the first half of 2013, a company with a long tradition of plywood production merged with us, namely ALFA Plywood, a.s. based in Solnica. With this merger, we enriched our workforce by more than 120 employees and acquired a facility to produce quality, Czech plywood and veneer.
The next step was to enter the packaging material and pallet market. This was achieved in 2013 thanks to the purchase of a share in one of the largest Czech pallet manufacturing companies JILOS HORKA, s.r.o., which subsequently merged with Wotan Forest, a.s. in 2015. This merger with our company brought high quality pallets of all kinds and a stable position on the Czech market.
Currently, we have more than 700 employees who work at 4 sawmills, which brings us stability in the supply of sawn timber for our operations. They also work at 4 wood processing plants, where we produce pallets, pallet boxes, plywood and counterweight veneer, and also take care of our trees in forest nurseries. Annually, we cut over 300 000 m3 and dry over 100 000 m3 of wood, we make over 2 500 000 pallets and produce over 30 000 m3 of plywood.
Wotan Forest, a.s. is a modern and dynamically developing company that focuses on primary wood processing and sawn timber production. In addition, we concentrate on the production of pallets and packaging, plywood and counterweight veneer. We always emphasize high quality goods and services for our customers.
Our structure with regional centres allows us to fully satisfy the requirements of all customers, from individuals, municipalities, cities, to large multinational companies.
The company takes great care to comply with all legislative rules and demands above and beyond this. For this reason, we are certified in ISO (9001, 14001, 45001 and 50001) and PEFC systems.
