Logging and management by SLB Group, a vocation and a know-how.
Since now 80 years, the Ledentu family is specialized in logging and wood trade. This transgenerational passion is worn now by Stéphane Ledentu, Chief Executive Officer of SLB Group, since the creation of the company in 1991.
Very quickly, the company decides to create forest groupings aimed at securing the species supply in a econological spirit.
The concept of Econology is still little known in France: the idea is to ally ecology and economy. This way, Stéphane Ledentu, strong supporter of the environment, turns Econology into his guiding thread and creates the brand European Forest in 2002, dedicated to forest massifs acquisition and sale. To expand this offer in Eastern Europe, the brand Eastern Forest is created in 2007. One year later, the project of reforestation in Brazil comes to life, via the brand SLB Do Brazil.
