Wood veneer is especially widely used in certain market segments: hospitality, residential projects, furniture etc. Veneer can also be transformed into a variety of products such as flooring, plywood or wall coverings...

We pay special attention to our log selection. Beech is the main species we work with. But we can also peel other varieties such as oak, ash, maple, poplar or any other wood species on request.

Each wood veneer is unique

We have complete control over the dimensions, thicknesses, faces, wood defects and colours. Each tree's unique character is expressed through wood veneer. In fact, every tree in the forest is unique. For this reason, colour and pattern may vary, even within the same species. Welcome to the wonderful world of wood veneer.
