Our machining processes are tested and verified digitally before production whilst continuing to add to our extensive CAD/CAM library.

We have some of the latest timber conversion machinery to transform wood stock, into accurate quality PAR timber.

We do all our own veneering in house using sophisticated stitching and cutting techniques to produce heat pressed veneer boards, to dead accurate tolerances
