Our history and philosophy

Labos company is originally an Albanian company founded in 1993 with its base located close to the capital as well as largest port of Albania.

Our products are produced from a renewable material, wood. Wood is an organic material that is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Our aim is to maintain the sustainability of our forests and their management. Our business relies directly on forests. Consequently, taking care of nature and the environment is especially important for us. Environmental aspects feature prominently in our product development and our choice of suppliers.

Precise utilization of raw material is a benefit to both our factories and the wood sellers. By optimizing the cutting in the forest, we can ensure that trees are used as efficiently as possible by our factories – this also serves to ensure the precision in recovering logs from the forest owner’s point of view.

Environmental
Initiatives

One of our main goals is to be foremost in international environmental standards and to obey the principles of sustainable forestry. We evaluate our operations, raw-materials and products continuously to ensure sustainability from forest to customer. Labos has been the forerunner in the Albanian forest industry when it comes to taking care of environmental matters and Labos has also been recognized for its actions.

The best practices for forestry that aims to preserve the diversity of nature are, for example, preserving valuable habitats and the living areas of endangered species, and leaving retention and deadwood in the forest during cutting. We live off the forest – that is why it’s our responsibility to take care of them.
