Slide Production Wood production at Malou is not an assembly line job. Our wood products go through many production steps. They go through many hands before they are ready to be packed. The freshly cut wood is first cut to the right size with the band saw, processed into suitable pieces before it is turned or notched. Then dried in a dryer and then sanded and finished. But there are even more processes in between. Every employee has his own speciality. The weather also plays a role in the production process. It is a lot more difficult to dry the wood in the rainy season. Employees Responsibility
Men & women In Malou’s workshop are around 30 employees. A lot of them are working already many years with Malou. They moved together with her when she started her own workshop. The other employees are from the local community. Malou has been working together with her employees for years. Proud professionals with years of experience in the field of woodworking. Malou is feeling very connected and responsible for her people.

The men usually work on the first steps of the production process, like cutting the logs to size. The women work more on the last steps of the production process, such as dyeing and packing the products.

Slide Material Acacia trees are not hard to find in the Philippines. You see them standing along the roads and on uncultivated land. The wood of the acacia is a non-indigenous hardwood. Beautiful, with a broad colour spectrum of warm to light segments. It is sustainable: it grows fast (the trees reach their full height in sixteen years) and for every tree that is cut down another one is planted. Planting the trees is regarded as an investment that yields a profit after a number of years when the wood is sold. The chopping of the trees, the trading and the processing is controlled by the government by means of certification. In some parts of the city permits to cut down trees are not granted.
