The owners of Realwood Establishment include the Portuguese brothers José Albano Maia Trindade, João Manuel Maia Trindade, and Alberto Pedro Maia Trinidade, who are also the signatories of Norsudtimber’s logging contracts in DRC. The Belgian Paul de Moor is also an owner of Realwood Establishment. He is the honorary consul for Belgium in Tasmania, Australia, and managing director of Kreglinger Wine Estates, which own Pipers Brook Vineyard in Australia.
Kreglinger was originally established in Belgium in 1797 . During the Belgian colonial period, Kreglinger opened vast coffee, rubber and palm oil plantations in the country. At one point, Kreglinger purchased Van Huffel Houtinvoer, a Belgian timber company that had been established in 1937 to log and trade Congolese timber. It seems that it was the concessions and sawmills of Van Huffel, held under Forabola, Soforma and CFT, which were later sold to the Trindade brothers when they established Norsudtimber in the late 1980s.
