29/06/2012 /  A Visit to the Carrefour International du Bois Wood Product Exhibition in France

From 6 to 8 June 2012, the international wood product industry exhibition, Carrefour International du Bois, was organised in the exhibition centre of Nantes in France. The number of participants exceeded 500, with wood processors and traders of wood products among them. The participants exhibited various wood products such as wooden pallets, pallet blanks, and firewood. The organisers also offered seminars on the use of wood in the construction industry. The participating companies were mainly from France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, and other European countries. There were also several companies from Africa as well as North and South America. This year no Lithuanian companies took part in the exhibition.

The number of visitors to the exhibition exceeded 10,000. They came from various countries around the world. The representatives of UAB Juodeliai were also among them. The representatives of the manufacturing company, which is one of the largest producers of pallet blanks in the Baltic States, had come with the goals of finding new contacts and discovering innovations in the wood processing market. The sales manager of UAB Juodeliai, Marius Karanauskas, confirmed that he had managed to make useful contacts with manufacturers in France and other countries using sawn wood as a raw material (e.g. to produce wooden pallet blanks). It can be expected that the interaction between the wood processors that started at the exhibition will continue and achieve the level of long-term partnership.

08/06/2012 /  Juodeliai, one of the largest wood processing companies in the Baltics, discovers new markets

In previous press releases it was mentioned that UAB Juodeliai produced and sold record levels of pallet wood this year. The company’s increased production capacity and expanding number of employees enable it to look for new markets for selling pallet blanks.

On 2 May this year, Saudi Arabian entrepreneurs representing the largest pallet production company in that country visited the headquarters of UAB Juodeliai. The purpose of the visit was to see the Juodeliai wood processing facilities and production machinery and, of course, to evaluate the quality of pallet wood produced. The results of the visit were positive; it was decided to sign a contract and start cooperating. The first orders for the transportation of processed wood to Saudi Arabia have also been signed.

UAB Juodeliai is also expanding contacts in other areas that have not been its cooperation partners yet: e.g. Scandinavia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. The producer of pallet wood is not only actively expanding in new markets but is also increasing the volume of exports to current clients.

08/05/2012 /  UAB Juodeliai becomes a certified member of the European Pallet Association (EPAL)

UAB Juodeliai has made yet another step in the international sphere; on 1 May this year, the company became a certified member of the European Pallet Association (EPAL).

For 18 years already, as much as 60% of the pallet blanks produced by the company comply with the requirements of EPAL standards. It is not expected that the production of pallet blanks according to the European standards under the licence issued by the EPAL certification body will change the share of EUR pallet blanks produced.

EPAL membership will facilitate the exchange of information between UAB Juodeliai and other pallet producers and ensure smooth communication and cooperation processes. Officially recognised compliance with EPAL standards and requirements will enable the company to satisfy the needs of individual clients in a more effective manner. EPAL membership is also a significant step forward for UAB Juodeliai, which is seeking to comply with the highest standards and is oriented towards the production of premium quality products.

The wood processing company UAB Juodeliai operates two sawmills. The first of these is the Akmenynai Sawmill, which was opened in 1994 in the village of Akmenynai in Kalvarija Municipality. The sawmill, which occupies an area of approximately one hectare, currently employs nearly 90 people. The volume of production of the Akmenynai Sawmill is approximately 30,000 m3 of pallet wood per year.

In 2000, the company purchased a new sawmill—the Jūrė Sawmill in the village of Jūrė in Kazlų Ruda Municipality. In 2007, this sawmill was reconstructed and upgraded and is now over three times larger than the Akmenynai Sawmill. The Jūrė Sawmill occupies an area of approximately 3.6 hectares and employs nearly 100 people. This modern sawmill produces an average of 48,000 m3 of pallet wood per year.

The two sawmills of UAB Juodeliai produce approximately 78,000 m3 of wood products per year. Pallet wood is produced from deciduous and coniferous tree logs. The two sawmills process approximately 156,000 m3 of wood per year: approximately 96,000 m3 is processed by the Jūrė Sawmill and approximately 60,000 m3 is processed by the Akmenynai Sawmill.
