Wood for Turnery

Espen provides a wide range of species, some purchased within nearby forests and cut in a nearby mill, others through direct imports from neighboring countries and from overseas. Our warehouse of 16,000 sqft. enables us to store timber in such a way that most of them are dry and ready for processing / turning.
