We design and manufacture our toys according to international standards
European EN 71, US ASTM F963 and our Thai national standard TIS 685-1997.
We use wood from rubbertree (official name : Hevea brasiliensis)
which is planted
mostly in the southern part of Thailand. The main purpose of these
trees is to yield
liquid white latex which is used to make rubber. After the trees become
too old to
yield latex, they are cut down and replaced with new ones. The lumber
trees is therefore plantation wood - not forest wood. It has been
from the start up of our company in 1981 to help protect the environment
full use of our wood and ensuring that there is no waste.
We also used MDF (medium density fiber) board, which is manufactured
sugarcane pulp. After the sugar mills squeeze the water from sugar
cane, the leftover
pulp is used as the main raw material in these MDF boards. Again,
nothing is wasted.
The colors used in manufacturing Voilà toys are water based
and are tested periodically
by independent lab testing specialists such as SGS and ITS. Every
batch of paint
delivered is also tested and guaranteed by the suppliers.
Our paints have been screened for chemicals such as lead, cadmium,
barium and etc.,
as well as for prohibited chemicals in wood such as PCP, and have
requirements of all toy safety standards.
All materials used, from wood to MDF to paper, have been assessed
for their impact on
the environment. This concern reflects the fact that in 2002, we were
the first Thai
wooden company to earn the right to use the Green Label Logo from
Institute for products made from rubber wood.
Our management system covers 4 areas of :

standards (TLS 8001-2003) into our Voilà management systems
