Sustainable Business with Malaysian Timber Council

Malaysia is a major producer of high-quality wooden flooring whose products are exported to highly discerning markets with stringent requirements such as the United States, Australia, and Japan. Among the popular timber species used for the manufacturing of Malaysian hardwood flooring are Balau, Merpauh, Kempas, Merbau and Dark Red Meranti. Malaysian wood floors are specifically milled, suitable in homes, offices, showrooms, indoor sports arenas, restaurants, resorts, as well as health and learning institutions.
