Lemahieu Group

Shaping the future
of timber & panels

Lemahieu Group's core business is lumber and panels. We import, process and preserve for the timber trade and the timber-processing industry.

Knowledge of wood and craftsmanship are the foundation of LEMAHIEU products. Innovation, quality, and customisation are of the utmost importance in our machinery and ensure continuous innovation in our assortment.

 

Besides standard panels, LEMPAN also offers special products, such as Okoume plywood or MDF TRICOYA EXTREME from MEDITE.

 

LDCwood is the 50/50 joint venture between Lemahieu Group and Decolvenaere Houtimport. LDCwood has been the Belgian market leader in the production of ThermoWood® since 2016.

 

We endeavour to be a loyal partner to the timber trade and specialised timber-processing industry both in domestic and in international markets. So, it is our mission to strive for an excellent level of customer service and satisfaction by supplying high-quality timber and panels and by maintaining and developing strong relationships with our stakeholders.

Our services

Processing

We can guarantee the highest quality and tailored advice based on our know-how and product knowledge. We create tailored solutions for the specialised timber trade with precision and passion. Our extensive range of machinery can be made available to you for your own timber machining.

Wood protection

Our various preservation techniques, including thermal, chemical, and impregnation under pressure, are required to protect the timber and extend its lifespan.

Fire protection

With Lemahieu Fire Protection®, we can give timber products a fire-retardant treatment with Burnblock® in our autoclave under pressure.

Timber import

As a timber importer, we advise our customers on choosing timber in accordance with the application (construction, hydraulic engineering, façade cladding, decking, interior, etc.).

Lempan Panels

The Lempan team selects the right producers and products with the greatest care and market knowledge. We closely follow and research new trends, which we may then include or not include in our product range.
