Our Commitment to the Environment and to our customers
20 years ago when very few companies in the timber industry were thinking about global warming, Jayakas has already invested a large amount of resources and time in research and development of Rubberwood – the eco-friendly timber. Jayakas factory has pioneered the process of direct extraction from Rubberwood. From that year until today, we have developed the shortened process time and optimizing the usage of materials, which translate into time and cost savings.
Most importantly, the process enables us to manufacture products closer to client specifications which are:
- more attractive, with no joints required;
- stronger, as a result of minimal uneven shrinkage;
- lighter, with a hollow core.
In Jayakas we strive to create quality products that balance the market demand and sustainability of the environment. We work in ways that value humanity and the environment now and in the future.
