Agris and Maija Greieri established AM 2 in 1997 to provide a timber sales agent service between sawmills in Latvia and the UK. Through the success of this initial business model, the company quickly established itself as an independent timber exporter, servicing the needs of businesses across Europe, the UK, Belarus and Russia.
Today with Agris still very much leading the business, we specialise in wood preservatives. We have partnered with Arxada (trading as Arch Timber Protection Ltd) to secure exclusive distribution of its wood preservative brands in Latvia and Belarus. We choose to partner with Arxada because of its market leading wood protection technologies.
With decades of experience the Tanalith®, Tanatone®, Vacsol® and Antiblu® wood preservative brands are tried, tested and trusted on a global scale. We work closely with Arxada to help our customers optimise the efficiency and safety of their timber treatment operations, through tailored engineering and technical support.
