It employs 140 workers, who annually produce and process 40,000 m3 of wood and produce 450,000 m2 of classic solid, “Liston” and the massive rural floor. In processing and production the most commonly used wood is oak.

Wood waste, generated during the production process through a modernly and ecologically set up boiler room, is used as a fuel for heating of the working space and 1500 m3 drying capacities.
