Located in the heart of the Landes de Gascogne, the eco-responsible company NP ROLPIN manufactures quality plywood, respectful of the environment. It benefits from the largest forest in France. This forest, one of the largest in Europe, has a resource of one million hectares of maritime pine. The company participates day after day in the valorization of this living raw material, while preserving it for future generations.
Protecting the forest and silvicultural know-how
Wood cutting has been practiced since the dawn of time. Nowadays, it is the object of a forestry policy managed by the Ministry of Agriculture. The objective is to reconcile economic and environmental issues.
According to the forestry code, “Sustainable management of forests ensures their biological diversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and ability to fulfil, now and in the future, relevant economic, ecological and social functions at local, national and international levels, without causing damage to other ecosystems..
NP ROLPIN, a player in thewood industry, is part of this dynamic. Thanks to its 100% Landes production, the company works to preserve forestry know-how. It also participates in the maintenance of the forest resource while respecting ecosystems and biodiversity.
As a manufacturer of high value-added products, it boosts the local economic fabric. Its jobs thus preserve regional know-how and are not relocatable.
A short circuit logic
The company NP ROLPIN enjoys a privileged situation, in the heart of the Landes forest. It can thus source local wood for the manufacture of its plywood and wood panels.
Equipped withoptimized production and distribution tools, it minimizes its movements between the different stages of production: exploitation of the raw material, transformation, distribution to the final consumer. The company will also carry out a large planting campaign in 2021 on 18 hectares in Labouheyre.
In partnership with the AFB, theFrench Biodiversity Agency, several plots will serve as experimental laboratories. A real living showroom, it will allow, for example, to follow the evolution of different species of maritime pine.
In conclusion, the NP ROLPIN eco-friendly plywood company is committed to playing a key role in mitigating climate change over the long term.
