Wood-Mizer: Fueling a rapidly growing Africa
After achieving successful careers in Europe or America, many African ex-pats are looking for opportunities to invest back into Africa or start a family business back home to ensure their family’s future. Wood-Mizer successes in Africa, our know-how, our industry-leading sawmilling equipment, our service support network that spans over 30 countries on the continent, and our proven track record of changing lives, is opening doors to investment success in Africa.
Fueling a growing Africa
Economies across Africa are flourishing. Growth rates for Africa in 2018 stand at more than double than what is expected from developed economies.
Entrepreneurs are recognising the opportunities in Africa and with access to expanding markets and valuable resources, there has never been a better time to invest than now.
Previously, high-value logs were exported from Africa in raw log form, with no local manufacturing, and small profits from log exports. The majority of the income was made outside of the countries
where the timber originated from.
Wood Mizer owners are using our sawmilling equipment to produce high-value sawn timber which enables strong income streams, expansion, employment, and secure a better life for the people whilst using the forest’s natural resources more wisely.
An investment in a profitable sawmilling venture in Africa can be the venture that secures your
family’s future over generations.
We know Africa
Wood-Mizer’s track-record in Africa spans more than three decades. Our Wood-Mizer Africa team comes from Africa, and we use this experience to design sawmills that are built tough for Africa.
We also use our knowledge of Africa to assist saw millers, ho help start and run successful sawmilling businesses.
Wood-Mizer sawmills combine affordability with the latest sawmilling technology. This makes it possible for Wood-Mizer sawmill owners to compete for head-on with large sawmills by producing export quality timber with equipment that doesn’t cost a fortune to buy and maintain.
With more successful sawmilling business now standing ready to cut logs into valuable sawn timber, Africa’s timber riches can now drive our economies instead of losing logs to foreign economies that unlock the value of the log for their benefit.
We support saw millers in Africa
Wood-Mizer also recognises that Africa deserves respect. We refuse to see the continent as a dumping ground for outdated, expensive equipment. We know that sawmills are often bought with decade’s worth of savings – therefore sawmillers in Africa deserve the best technology that money can buy, at the best possible price.
We also support the sawmill once the machine is bought. Wood-Mizer has a dealer network that stretches over 30 countries in Africa.
Sawmillers now have access to expert and local after-sales-service centres that can assist to maintain machines, supply spares and blades, train and educate and advise on how to grow your business into the future.
The potential investor is assured of a quality product that is simple to use, is efficient and maximizes your return on investment.
