The basis for the investments were plants for thermal wood processing, drying and steaming kilns, a new sawmill, a bark peeling machine and other facilities which provide better working conditions.

Our employees represent the strength and the energy that activates everything. All of them meet annually at the traditional workers’ games organized by the company itself to give the employees a chance to socialize and exchange their opinions and new ideas. Increasing the investments and the capacity, the number of employees has become bigger, so that the company now employs over 85 people.

The business was crowned with the award for “The most successful small business in 2012”, which the company received from the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Crafts on the 50th anniversary of their foundation.
