In Asia, bamboo has several important metaphorical significance that relate to its physical form and represent different positive character traits that also exemplify our core business values:
- First, the luxuriant green bamboo forest is an elegant symbol of a distinguished noble character.
- Second, the hollow within the bamboo represents humility and an open mind.
- Third, the nodes in the bamboo’s stem symbolise a firm and indomitable spirit that continues on its rise, from strength to strength.
- Fourth, bamboo’s straight, undeviating growth represents integrity of character.
Bamboo is an excellent construction material. It is both exceptionally strong, with a tensile strength greater than steel, and highly durable as it is harder than most varieties of wood.
In its laminated form, it presents a pleasant natural wood grain appearance.
