Long-Term Sustainability

At Pinewood, our production approach is significantly different from many others in the outdoor sector. We do not hire agents or purchasing offices for our core production, and we refrain from using external teams for quality control inspections. Instead, we have established our processes within the company, meaning we are responsible for them ourselves. This ensures consistently high product quality over time. Our strategy involves a deeper understanding of every part of the manufacturing process, leading to innovation and improvements that benefit both our products and the environment. Below, you can read more about our sustainability work so far and upcoming plans for the future.
