Founded in 1928 and based in Loulay, in the Charente-Maritime, the Group MALVAUX INDUSTRIES is France’s leading manufacturer of decorative wood panels and technical plywood.

Following its sale to GREEN RECOVERY in 2006 by the Finnish Group SCHAUMAN WOOD (Group UPM), MALVAUX INDUSTRIES succeeded its reorganization, initially concentrated on its traditional activity. Thanks to a winning strategy of build-up initiated by its senior manager Philippe DENAVIT, with purchases of NAVILINE, SETB and, recently, ST BOIS CONCEPT, the Group has been able to diversify 40% of its activity.

With over €37m of turnover for the current financial year, MALVAUX INDUSTRIES has been able to diversify into interior design. The unprocessed or finished products made by MALVAUX INDUSTRIES are aimed at the markets of construction, railway, fitting out, boat building and retail.
