Fedecomlegno, the Italian national timber association, was founded in 1949 in Rome from the fusion of two previous industry organisations, the Association of National Timber Producers and Merchants and the Italian Association of Timber Importers.

Fedecomlegno today represents importers, merchants, and agents trading in timber, semi-processed and finished wood products. It has around 100 members, spread across the whole of Italy, and has strong dedicated representation in all the regions of the country. Italy imports about 80% of its timber, adding up to a total in 2011 of around 16 million m3. Most of this is accounted for by the membership of Fedecomlegno.

They buy from all the most important producer countries and regions, giving them a strong strategic position in the international timber trade, as well as optimal supply to meet the needs of customers. The timber and related products supplied by Fedecomlegno members are used in a range of sectors, including industrial, handicraft and construction, with their main focus on building, flooring, packaging and furniture materials and products.

In 1985, the organisation strengthened its position further by becoming one of the association members of Federlegnoarredo, the Italian federation of industries of wood, cork and furniture, which comprises more than 2500 members (www.federlegnoarredo.it). Another important role of Fedecomlegno is to promote wood, to raise awareness of its potential and to increase Italian consumption. It has a dedicated division, “Promolegno”, devoted to this function which produces literature, organises workshops and seminars and has its own website, www.promolegno.com
