PNG Balsa produces highest quality glued blocks, rigid panels, grid scored flexible panels and tapered end grain panels for a variety of customers and applications in three density categories, graded with electronically controlled laser density machines:
Balsa logs are harvested after 5 years growth and then rapidly processed. Our “quick to kiln” capability eliminates the threat of fungus attack and blue stain which distinguishes us significantly from other producers whilst eliminating the risks for our customers during the end use process. Green boards are dried in PLC kilns prior to further transformation into finished material.
Our plantations’ close proximity to our manufacturing complex enables year-round production, rapid throughput and highly controlled supply chain management for us and our partners. Close to 4000 hectares are now under cultivation.
PNG Balsa’s manufactured products have been certified by Lloyds of London Register and are under active review by additional quality certification groups such as ISO, DNV, Germancher Lloyd and Forest Stewardship Council.
