Our expertise for a greener earth
Economic forum Ivory Coast - Italy
The invitation to the Economic Forum between the Côte d'Ivoire and Italy, organized by the Milan Expo from 28.09. until 29.09.2015 came for us very surprising, but it made us accordingly proud.
As it turned out, the reason for the invitation lay in our "Cathaia Perma" concept designed for Senegal, which had found its way to the Ivorian Ministry of Economics and met with a genuine interest there. In a personal meeting with the Ivorian minister of economic affairs in Milan, we were able to explain the concept further.

At our trade fair appearances
At various trade fairs you have the opportunity to get to know us and to talk to us personally about the cultivation of Paulownia in Germany and worldwide. However, also topics such as profitability, commercialization of wood, its special properties in furniture construction and other special areas can be discussed there.
At our stand you can see, touch, feel and smell the Paulownia. But you can also experience Paulownia wood in use, from trunk slices to the processed product. It's definitely worth a visit.
