The development is performed in collaboration with the sister company Välinge Innovation AB, best known for inventing the click floor.

The Parquet factory – Ogulin 1
The flooring plant at our Ogulin 1 site has a capacity of 2,5 million m² of flooring. The main products are planks, three-strip parquet and parquet strips for herringbone installation.
The Ogulin factory has its own sawmill where logs are sawed and processed. After processing, the boards are dried in modern kilns and then used for the middle layer of the parquet flooring. Sawdust and wood waste are used as raw material for our pellet and briquette production.

The Veneer Factory in Otok
Bjelin Otok is one of the most modern veneer plants in Europe and is well known for its high quality oak veneer. All our production is based on oak material and we are one of the leading European producers of high-quality oak veneer.
