In 1986 company started sawmill and in 1990 started producing flooring. Thru years company developed to a factory which employs over 260 people at two sites in Croatia – Mraclin (headquarters) and Majur. Main products are solid wood flooring, multilayer flooring, wooden decking, wooden cladding and pellet and briquette for heating, all made from top quality Croatian resources.
