The packaging is manufactured from poplar wood. The logs, known as "saw-logs", are brought to the production sites either by rail or truck. Before becoming finished products, the saw-logs undergo a series of changes throughout a complex manufacturing process :

Bark of poplar


This first stage aims to strip the saw-log of its bark, using a system of metal arms fitted with knives. The debarked saw-logs will then be introduced to the production line for processing.


The saw-log will then be cut. Depending on the quality of the foot, one part will be used in peeled veneer ; the other part will be headed for sawing.


The "head saw" cuts the non-peelable logs into boards to be used in the "board edger" which, in turn, cuts them into brackets.

Rotary Cutting

This is to cut the logs that from the chainsaw into battens. These will then be fed into the machinery used for making the "side", "end" and "base" packaging items.


When the different items have been made, the slats and brackets are assembled and attached to create the packaging to dimensions defined by the clients' requirements.
