Whether for kitchen interiors, the floors of logistics centres, door interior cores, office furniture or exhibition stand construction – it would be difficult to imagine the furniture industry without this multi-faceted and flexible building material. In Germersheim we develop and produce chipboard for many diverse customer requirements. With over 65 years of experience in design, construction and finishing, we (almost) always find a solution – and we take pride in that. Along with our long-standing customers hailing from various industries and trades, we gladly draft joint designs for customised chipboard that meets the individual requirements.
While carrying out our work, we lay a great deal of importance in the responsible dealing with the renewable raw material wood. That is why we work exclusively with woods grown using sustainable forestry methods and only buy high-quality raw materials originating from the local region. Our environmental management system has been EMAS certified since 1997.
