Asian Forestry Company (Sabah) is public-private partnership between Merica Forests Pte Ltd and the State Government of Sabah, with the objective of developing a sustainable forestry business based on sound ecological, social and economic principles.
Asian Forestry Company (Sabah) is developing an area of degraded and threatened forests into a managed mosaic of protected natural forests and productive planted forests. The planted forest alone will produce high quality timber for Sabah's downstream industries.
Integrity of ecologically sensitive and high conservation value areas is ensured through detailed pre-planning based on LiDAR and ground surveys, combined with rigorous operations management and independent audits.
Complimenting the planted forest establishment are Community Development and Conservation programmes which seek to ensure we operate as good neighbours and as reliable custodians of Sabah's natural heritage.
Our operations are wholly managed by Forest Solutions Malaysia Sdn Bhd, professional forest management experts with extensive experience operating in East Malaysia. The company employs 130 local and 4 expatriate staff at their Kota Marudu and Kota Kinabalu offices.
As a standards driven company, Forest Solutions staff are rigorously trained in their standard operating procedures and adhere strictly to the mission, policies and values of Asian Forestry Company (Sabah).
"To be recognized globally as a leading forestry company in terms of quality, sustainability and productivity."
"To create world-class sustainable, planted forest projects incorporating best practices of conservation, research and community development through operational excellence and innovation."
