“Furniture producers put high hopes on our partnership,” noted Ali Kılıç. “And we try to justify the trust put in us. It’s important for us to be a part of the industry community to enable its sustainable development by our joint efforts. We expand and increase the production thus ensuring fast and qualitative development of not only the wood processing industry, but also of related industries, first of all, the furniture industry.”
Today the KASTAMONU plant produces MDF/HDF wood boards of different sizes and widths, as well as products based on them (including EVOGLOSS glossy panels widely used for furniture facades). The designed capacity of the plant is more than 1 million m3 wood boards per year.
