We started going to Russia in 2017 and have found it to have huge potential. We have a Russian partner who understands the wood business very well, has a team to help us to develop and qualify factories and helps with any cultural divide between the USA and Russia.
Russia has a huge amount of available timber in Birch and Aspen.
All wood is legally harvested and much of it is FSC certified as Russian factories are required to maintain very detailed documentation regarding the wood they harvest from the government-sanctioned concessions.
Domestic and foreign-sourced drawer parts have been a specialty of ours for 30 years.
