The year 1963 heralded the birth of Mandaue Timber Company. Founded by Mr. Lim Liu, the small outfit was engaged in selling lumber and wooden cases to soft drink and beer companies in Cebu. The following year saw Mr. Liu putting up an affiliate sawmill factory in Cagayan de Oro.
Five years after, the flourishing company ventured into subcontracting for major lumber exporters while diversifying into kiln-dried wood processing. It was not long before the company carved its very own niche in the wood export industry. But it was only the beginning of bigger things to come...
1974 marked a milestone in the company’s colorful history. Driven by brisk business and renewed vitality, the company was renamed Matimco, Inc. It further expanded its reach by setting up a wood processing company in Cagayan de Oro.
By 1984, its strong presence was felt in Luzon through the acquisition of Kingsway Enterprises Corporation, now known as Matimco Quezon City branch.
In 1997, Matimco moved into its new well-appointed office in Mandaue City, Cebu. What was once a small company that sold soft drink and beer cases has now become a wood industry major player with a nationwide network.
Today, Matimco, Inc. and its affiliate companies run the largest wood processing operations in the country, with over 300 employees producing more than 500 products. With a network of over 2,000 dealers all over the country, Matimco by far has the largest and the most expansive timber distribution network in the nation.
