The business has diversified considerably in the last 10 years, and now, while still a prominent force in the forestry business, ASF has diversified operations to cover an expanded commodity base and geographical scope of operations providing customers with bespoke solutions that provide for the optimum flow of goods, materials, and information.
Current projects include, amongst others, feed trucks to Saudi Arabia, recreational vehicles to Australia, synthetic fiber to the Indian Sub-Continent, hardwoods to China and pine flooring to Europe.
