We did not start from scratch but were able to build on past achievements. What is new, however, is our claim to consolidate our past growth, to establish the same standards throughout the group and to consistently anchor relevant sustainability aspects in our processes
As individuals we spend 80 to 90% of our lives indoors, inhaling and exhaling ten to twenty cubic metres of air a day. Although today’s nearly airtight buildings make sense from an energy point of view, the ventilation systems needed are questionable in terms of healthy living. Wood is a natural material. In parquet production, glues, lacquers, colours, stains, oils as well as cleaning and care products are applied during installation and the subsequent use phase. If improperly developed and applied, these may cause emissions that impair indoor air quality and a healthy living or working environment during the hardwood floor’s service life. With our brands BOEN and Bauwerk Parquet, we stand for parquet of high quality that is harmless to health. To meet high quality demands for both of our brands, we rely on continuous investments in product development, credible certificates, and targeted information and training for installers and (end) consumers.
