Storage and preparation of timber and elements
Raw materials and supplies are unloaded by fork lifts into a closed warehouse or open storage area. Warehouse features facilities for primary cutting into elements of required size for further processing in drying chambers.
Two BRUNNER HILDEBRANT dryers with 2×45 m³ capacity are equipped with rails and steel platforms. Timber and elements are places on the platforms and transported by rails into the dryers and back to the production facilities.
Drying process is fully computerized.
Dry timber is transported into warehouse for cutting and is then taken by fork lifts into production facilities.
Production process is carried out on machines positioned in accordance with technological procedure – from initial processing to assembly of finished product.
Coloring is done in 2 spraying chambers using ecological colors. Chambers are fully ventilated. Furniture is transported into warehouse for finished products where it is packed and loaded on to trucks.
Pieces requiring upholstery are brought to upholstering section for final finishing.
Administration building features:
Management and technical department offices
2 wardrobes with showers and restrooms for 130 workers per shift
Restaurant for employees, located in the central part of the building, providing easy access for all employees.
