Ethics and integrity

The term AVA is derived from the Latin phrase “Agi Videant Aequitates (AVA)”. This translates to “Equitable Dealing,” meaning to be fair and impartial. Our foundational principle is to treat all clients, employees and partners fairly. This ethos has allowed AVA Timber to form and maintain strong and enduring relationships. It’s the experienced individuals at AVA Timber who are crucial in maintaining a high degree of oversight and monitoring of activity. This guarantees we are in line with the best practices of ethics and integrity.
