In 2017, we gave our company a new name: Gras Wood Wide. The name ‘BV Houthandel v/h F. & G. Gras’ was established in 1917. Exactly 100 years later, it was time for a new name. One that covers the (international) outlook. Gras Wood Wide refers not only to the world wide web, but also to the wood wide web.
Trees communicate with each other; underground, they share nutrients and create their own ecosystem. Trees that are in contact with each other are better able to survive. Just like our company. Founded in 1868, we are still as strong today as we were then, thanks to the strong bond between our sales divisions. They work closely together, like a wood wide web.
