It was more than a quarter of a century ago that the European-wide uniqueness of the Hungarian oak wood brought to life our wood processing company. Today the 3rd generation is working on our products and the company’s continual development. After years of hard work, we have finally reached the point where we are able to produce exclusively high-quality wood flooring.
Our company, which is 100% Hungarian owned, is located in Zalalövő, near the Őrség, which is inarguably one of Hungary’s most beautiful parts. The company is spreaded out on 6.9 hectares, with 190 employees, processes 13.000 m3 oak wood per year, which produces 200.000 m2 EDELHOLZ wood flooring.
In our production we mix modern technology with our craftsmen’s decade-long experience. They give us traditions and the past’s values. Besides the oak‘s 120 years of history, our craftsmen’s past also comes alive in our flooring, this is what makes every handmade piece unique and unrepeatable.
As Manufacturers we think it is important to emphasize that during the production of our EDELHOLZ flooring we pay attention to environmental awareness. With the introduction of the FSC system, we have joined the internationally acknowledged Forest Stewardship Council’s main goal to help promoting environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. We acquire our raw material from forestrys that also promote sustainability to make sure that even our grandchildren will see the forests’ rich wildlife and experience their magical atmosphere.
Nominated by Levente Trellay:
“Key word: sustainability. Humanity must face great challenges in the decades to come. We must redefine entirely the foundations of its existence. One of such paradigm is to substitute “enrichment” of the individual with the “enrichment” of the community. We cannot just exploit completely the resources provided by our planet out of selfish interests and then move on at the end. Edelholz is one of the Hungarian companies that retain important nature’s biorhythm. Therefore they have structured their production according to the above, thus insuring sustainability or rather a kind of future where several decades from now, not only should their factory building stand but the oak woods as well.”
