The Solid Wood Flooring European Manufacturing Facility

Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

The Building Centre will be open fully with the café back and exhibitions in place from Monday 12th April 2021.

The Solid Wood Flooring European Manufacturing Facility

The images below show the modern facility we have for our European production facility. The use of precision modern machines guarantees our quality from whatever facility we have. The area of the factory in the image below shows the press for gluing the top layers to the plywood back as well as one of the profiling machines.

Press and Profiling Machine

Due to the efficiency of the profiling machines and layout of the factory we can easily produce more than 5,000 m2 per month from this facility. Should higher volumes be required we can supply from one of our other two wood flooring mills.

Profiling Machine

The production facility with the variety of profiling machines means we can produce the following:

Planks up to and wider than 300mm

Herringbone sizes from 100mm x 450mm

Chevron sizes from 100mm x 450mm

The area of the factory below shows the cutting and processing line. There is a brushing machine, sanding machine and other processes that means we can create any floor you need. 

Cutting and Inspection Area

The wood drying area and finishing line is well ventilated which guarantees that the engineered wood flooring is stable with the correct moisture content of between 7% to 9%. We finish with natural oils, UV cured oils and lacquers, using
only the highest quality materials available. 

Natrual Air Drying Racks for oiled wood floors

We are very stringent with our packing of the wood flooring to guarantee that it stays dry during transit and arrives in the correct quantity ordered. The packs are shrink wrapped so that whatever season the floor is transported in it will arrive with a moisture level of between 7% to 9%.

Finishing and Packing Area

We operate a total of 4 mills worldwide to ensure that the quality and consistency of our flooring is always the same. If you get floods or damage to your flooring we can always replace like with like.

We guarantee our supply chain and plan raw material purchases and production plans ahead of time.
