The benevolent alliance between Technima and the National Forestry Office (ONF)
Technima, an aerosol paint manufacturer renowned for its commitment to quality, safety, and respect for the environment, has won the National Forestry Office tender for the 3rd time, helping to create a positive impact on our environment.
Forest marking is a crucial practice for the sustainable management of forest resources. By selectively identifying and preserving certains woods, forest or areas, this technique allows the forest to regenerate naturally while safeguarding biodiversity. In addition, marking guarantees a continuous supply of wood while preserving the delicate balance of the ecosystem. Forest marking supports the responsible management of forests, ensuring their sustainability for future generations.
1. THE NEEDS OF THE ONF
The ONF is faced with multiple challenges, starting with climate change, which is causing fires and tree diseases (ink disease, ash chalarosis) that are compromising the health of forest areas. There is also human pressure, with urban expansion and agricultural activity reducing woodland areas, endangering biodiversity. Then there is the overuse of forest resources, with the challenge of meeting demand while preserving the long-term ecological balance. Faced with these challenges, the ONF must adopt innovative approaches, collaborate with various stakeholders and promote environmental sustainability while meeting needs, thereby ensuring the preservation of forests for future generations.
Our aerosol marking paints are designed with the greatest respect for people and the environment. We are proud to assure you that our paints meet strict standards set by the National Forestry Office. These strict criteria guarantee not only the effectiveness of our products, but also their minimal impact on the ecosystem. We believe in the importance of durability, which is why our range of aerosol paints is specially formulated to stand the test of time, ensuring exceptionally long-lasting markings. In addition, our extensive range of colors is carefully selected to meet the specific requirements of the ONF, perfectly adapting to their varied needs. We also take our environmental responsibility seriously by offering a dedicated recycling program for our used aerosols. Through our commitment to quality, sustainability and environmental preservation, we are pleased to make a positive contribution to the sustainability of our forestry operations.
2. INNOVATION IN FOREST MARKING
Our SOPPEC FOREST brand stands out significantly in the forest marking industry thanks to its constant commitment to innovation. We have introduced advances to make paint application easier for ONF staff, ensuring unrivalled accuracy and efficiency in the field. We've rethought the marking process by introducing belt aerosol holders for our aerosols, offering professionals a practical and secure way to carry their equipment. In addition, our ergonomic forestry handle has been created to help users apply the paint from our aerosols evenly and comfortably, even in the most demanding forestry conditions. Continuing our tradition of innovation, we've introduced paint marker pens, offering precise control and ease of use for demarcation work, for example. Our lumber crayons is another example of our commitment to this idea of innovation. They offer a practical, environmentally-friendly alternative while maintaining exceptional marking quality. These technological advances reflect Technima's commitment to excellence and our desire to simplify the work of the ONF's forest marking professionals, while helping to preserve the environment through its ecological and efficient solutions. We continue to be at the forefront of the industry by introducing innovative products that push the boundaries of efficiency and sustainability in forest marking.
In the demanding job of forestry officer supervised by the National Forestry Office, professionals are often exposed to risks of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) due to the repetitive movements and uncomfortable positions associated with this task. These MSDs can lead to persistent pain, joint stiffness and unfitness for work. However, thanks to the creation of our ergonomic forestry handles, these risks are considerably reduced. Our forestry handles are specially designed to offer better support and a more comfortable grip, enabling workers to ensure precise, fast work while reducing the strain on muscles and joints. In this way, not only are we improving the health and well-being of forestry marking professionals, but we are also increasing the efficiency and productivity of this activity, which is essential to the sustainable management of our forests.
