The best for sawn timber

Better by miles

We have decades of experience behind us: the JAF Group has been active in the international sawn timber business for 65 years. Thanks to our expert knowledge, our team has a perfect nose for deciding which timber is right for our customers and the respective purpose.

As a full service supplier of sawn timber, JAF has direct access to all of the important procurement markets: we buy for our customers in the best forests and saw mills of Europe and import high quality sawn timber from our high performance partners in all continents.


Here for you right from the beginning

JAF is in Europe right on the spot where the timber resources grow. We accompany the value creation chain from trees and logs in the forest through to cutting production and sales. The short routes also mean cost advantages for sawn timber which are then attractively reflected in the sales prices.

Timber expertise at the highest level

In our own bonded warehouse at the international port of Trieste we have various species of timber from all over the world available for immediate loading. We also stock an extensive range of European timber and Siberian larch in St. Marein (Styria, Austria) which is available at any time.
