"Jauda-koks " LTD is a private company which was founded when Latvia got the independence in 1992. Company privatized two manufacturing factories - Suntazi and Kandava, where wooden poles were produced since sixties. Since the same people continued to work in new company, we can say that "Jauda-Koks" LTD is one of the oldest impregnation companies in Eastern Europe. For some time in local market Jauda-koks was the only impregnation service provider with water-soluble wood preservatives, and all the leading woodworking companies used our service. After Soviet system collapsed and demand in domestic market reduced, we had to adapt to the new market conditions, and started our export activities. In 1995 "Jauda-Koks" LTD bought high-quality peeling machine FML-10 from German manufacturer „Bezner”. Smooth peeled wood poles for many years was the main export product of all leading impregnation plants in Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Scandinavia and other countries, where manufacturers had already many years of experience in export markets. Since then, the wood poles are manufactured in accordance with conditions of international standards: BS-1990, NF C 67-100, ANSI O5.1, EN-351, etc. At the beginning of the century, "Jauda- Koks" LTD gradually began to conquer the market of impregnated poles with deliveries directly to the customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Due to the outstanding quality and gained trust, the orders of impregnated poles increased, allowing "Jauda-Koks" LTD to abandon any export of untreated poles, but selling product with a high added value instead. EU biocides directive in the 2006 prohibited wood preservatives containing arsenic and many impregnation companies had to find the alterantive. Jauda-koks LTD modernized Suntazi factory and started impregnation with wood preservative Tanalith E. The improved efficiency of production allowed us to produce the necessary amount of poles in one factory and we were able to use our second factory to start another business.
