Eco-Friendly Products
With more than 30 years of experience in Indonesia and wood industry, Samko has pioneered the use of sustainably grown plantation timber to create attractive, strong and durable plywood and veneer products that beautify residential, commercial and office spaces around the world. Our high quality products exude the warmth and feel of natural wood in the form of solid decking, floors, doors, roof trusses, walls and window frames. You can also find our products in other wide arrays of usage, such as grand pianos, truck bodies, and garage doors.

Made To International Standards
Our products don’t just look and feel good: they also meet global standards for quality and environment management, including chain of custody (CoC), ISO 9001 and 14001 certification as well as low emissions standards accepted in the United States, Japan, Europe and Asia. All our natural forest wood is sourced from legal concession areas in Indonesia, with a total of 85 percent of our wood now sourced from commercially grown resources (plantations). Our agents continually strive to create new commercial growing areas and seek out new sources of plantation wood in the field. Not all of our products are sustainably grown but our aim is to continuously increase sustainability in our wood resources.

With local partners
Over the years we have cooperated with landowners and local communities in Java, Sulawesi and Sumatera to increase wood supply from our commercially grown forests from rubber, sengon and other plantation species. Indonesia’s natural ecosystems are increasingly under threat from population expansion, and Samko aims to provide farmers and forest communities with important sources of extra income to improve livelihoods and mitigate forest migration. Our community programmes to encourage planting see the distribution of seeds at no cost, such as free seeding program to local communities in Java and Sulawesi, whom we also educate about the latest forestry techniques. We also make sure to locate our processing plants close to communities to minimize carbon emissions and wastage incurred in both manufacturing and transportation as well as to maximize the wood recovery in the production process.

For a Better Tomorrow
By acting locally, we aim to create products that look and feel beautiful, as well as strengthen communities and, most importantly, preserve Indonesia’s priceless natural heritage.
