Our planing mill

All wood floors supplied by us are produced by our artisan planing mill in the Netherlands. We buy our basic wood cut and dried from our regular dealers within France.

This way we can supply the finest engineered or solid wood floors, as well as a wide range of colours, allowing you to purchase that wood floor that meets your requirements and wishes.
