HARDWOOD TIMBER (ROUGH, S2S, KILN DRIED BEECH & MAPLE) PRODUCTION PROCESS

• Lafor utilizes band saws for primary and secondary log itemization assisted by skilled personnel for accuracy and maximum utilization of resources. Our comprehensive lumber manufacturing process is contained under roofs to protect and enhace the natural color of the wood we saw, steam and dry. Lafor utilizes the latest technology for steaming and drying its lumber.

• We rip saw and cut off each piece of lumber after the kiln drying process. That means high quality and outstanding appearance. This is very important competitive advantage for us and for your customers. Most of the lumber manufacturers process the lumber before kiln drying process. During the kiln drying the wood twists, cracks, etc. Some other producers don’t sort out these defects and that means waste money for customers.

• Another competitive advantage is that we own a very productive - built 2008 and 2012 sawmill, and we have the largest (1300 cubm) kiln drying capacity in the area. That means that we can supply a constant quantity of lumber year around.

Most of our customers acknowledged that we have the best quality timber from Romania.
