Bauwerk Parkett is produced at four locations: St. Margrethen Switzerland, Durdevac Croatia, Kietaviskes Lithuania,  Kaliningrad Russia (Sawmill)

ORIGIN OF WOOD

The sustainable and safe procurement of the demanded raw materials
is extremely important for us in guaranteeing Bauwerk’s top
quality. Thus, for example, 97 per cent of the wood we process comes
from Europe, and only 3 per cent from North America (e.g. walnut).

SAWMILL

A third of our demand for timber is covered by our own sawmills in
Russia, Lithuania and Croatia. As a result, Bauwerk is involved in
all stages of the entire process and possesses the necessary expertise.

KILN DRYING

Since 2017, we have been carrying out raw-material-oriented processing
steps, such as kiln drying and cutting of lamellas, only in the
growth areas. This way, it is possible for us to usefully create value
in the country of origin, causing less environmental pollution due
to the lower weight of the dried wood.

TOP LAYER PRODUCTION

 The boards are cut into 4 to 7 top layers using the latest frame saws.

GLUING AND PRESSING

Experience, precision and efficiency are key for quality-decisive
process steps. The top layer and the base are bonded to each other
and compressed.

SURFACE PROCESSING

The brushing and coating require a lot of finesse,
as every piece of wood is unique. The challenge here is to achieve a
consistent gloss level and shade.

PROFILING AND FINAL QUALITY CONTROL

Final processing includes profiling and edge treatment: precision
is required here so that the planks can be laid together quickly and
without difficulty at the construction site. As a final quality inspection,
the planks are manually checked and sorted if necessary.

STORAGE

The parquet is then neatly packaged to protect it against humidity. This
way, 61 per cent of the Bauwerk range of products is currently produced
at the St. Margrethen site, which is not going to change in the
future.
