Our service competency lies in our highly skilled workers, complimented by our high investment and applications of some of the most modern and advanced technologies and state-of-the-art facilities, to meet today’s fast-changing and highly demanding challenges of our global customers.
Kiln drying, which is the gradual extraction of moisture from sawn timber to achieve the desired moisture content, is undertaken to improve the physical and mechanical strength of the timber. This will also reduce subsequent surface-cracking and splitting of the applied timber, hence enhancing its durability, functionality and commercial value.
Our 17 KD chambers, covering a built-up area of 30,000 sq ft, are fully automated. The chambers have a combined monthly production capacity of 2,000-2,500 metric tons.
Besides kiln drying, we also provide the additional services of timber grading and packing, right up to containers loading.
We have the technology and facility to provide timber treatment using both the pressure-impregnation and conventional soaking methods at our timber complex. Timber treatment, with its fungicidal- and insecticidal-prevention properties, are required to protect certain timber species that are prone to fungus growth and/or insect-borings as well as timber that are used externally.
NWP Group, through its subsidiary, DMKT Timber Sdn Bhd, provides contract-logging service to other forestry companies or rent out logging heavy-vehicles to them. We have a comprehensive fleet of log-loaders, tractors, dump-truck, motor-graders and logging-trucks and a team of experienced logging-workers and mechanics. Our past and present principals are well pleased with our performance.
NWP Group presently also provides contract-sawmilling service for other forestry companies in Sabah, Malaysia, especially loggers that have harvested log but do not have their own sawmill or expertise.
