Currently running 6 state of the art loading operations throughout the Southeast with a total of 60 hectares, GEC has the most advanced harvesting, loading and trucking equipment in the industry with a loading capacity of 1,000 containers per week.
GEC is the only fully integrated exporter of SYP in the Southeast United States. Employing its team of in-house foresters, loggers, operators, fumigators, truckers and a documents department that handles all customer contracts, GEC is able to shorten the process and more readily deliver to the needs of its international customers. In 2015, GEC established its first overseas sales office in Qingdao, China. The representatives from this office are able to provide direct sales and service to our customers at a local level.
SYP logs are derived from the Pinus family and consist of four major species which are indistinguishable from one another- even under microscopic examination. They are the Shortleaf Pine, Slash Pine, Longleaf Pine, and Loblolly Pine. SYP logs can be used in many different applications such as furniture making, construction materials, molding, and picture frames.
