VOGEL IMPORT EXPORT NV DISTRIBUTES WOOD AND WOOD PRODUCTS. WE HANDLE THE PURCHASE, COMMERCIALISATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF THESE WOOD PRODUCTS TO MARKETS IN EUROPE AND THE MIDDLE EAST. THIS RANGES FROM ROUGH SAWN TROPICAL HARDWOOD TO FINISHED PRODUCTS.
At Vogel Import Export NV we can look back on decades of experience in the production, distribution and commercialisation of wooden handles. Our annual sales worldwide amount to approx. 35 million pieces. The handles find application as garden tools, brooms and cleaning products and are supplied to broom- producers and distributors.
We organise and control the production of handles mainly in South America (Brazil), but also offer handles from the Far East and Eastern Europe. With our wide range of products and our worldwide marketing area we are considered as a world leader within our sector.
Furthermore, we also focus on the import and distribution of tropical hardwood. The wood is imported as semi manufactured product (rough sawn) or as finished product (i.e. decking) and supplied to the professional importers of wood in Europe. Thanks to years of experience with and knowledge of South America, Vogel Import Export NV has developed a wide network of suppliers and our own hardwood quality surveyors. This enables us to guarantee a constant supply of high-quality wood.
Originally, Vogel Import Export N.V. was a German company with a long tradition in the production of wooden handles. With a view to a better competitiveness, the founder Gunter Vogel decided in the 80’s to start up the production of handles in Brazil. His company was taken over in the late 80’s by the Belgian management, who further developed the production and distribution of handles and started importing tropical hardwood. Today, Vogel Import Export N.V. has a leading position in the distribution of handles as well as one of the most important importers of tropical hardwood in Europe.
Nowadays Vogel Import Export NV also offers products with FSC label. Both tropical hardwood and wooden handles can be delivered with FSC label. In this way we attempt to also pay sufficient attention to the ecological aspect.
Together with our department Vogel Forwarding, we can offer you a complete solution for the purchase and delivery of tropical hardwood or wooden handles. While we at Vogel Import Export NV take care of the purchasing, financing and quality control, Vogel Forwarding is there to deal with the logistics and the dispatching.
