Eco Timber Traders is a team of passionate, excited and motivated people who love wood and love to sell. The company was started in 2010 by Hans Schneemann from a 200m2 factory in Mahogany Ridge. Hans has been in the timber industry for 13 years and has gained valuable experience working for some of the industry’s most prominent timber agents and merchants. In 2011 he was joined by Rob Chubb who bought shares in the company and has brought with him 18 years of experience in the hardwood industry. Rob owned his own company in East London called Timber Warehouse and then moved to JHB where he worked for a prominent timber importing agency. Eco has now become a well-respected supplier in Kwazulu Natal. They operate out of a Warehouse in central Pinetown and offer quality hardwoods, decking, flooring and plywoods to a wide range of customers across the province.
