2015 marks a double historic moment: the purchase of a new last generation Italian planer useful for the production of S4S planed beech and the installation of two new last generation exsiccation ovens from the Italian company, TERMOLEGNO. This gives a technological advantage that reduces the seasoning time of timber, especially the oak timber.

During the period between 2008-2012 a constant expansion of the production area happened, through the acquisition of new lands, afterwards reclaimed, that were designate as service areas for the transportation of goods and indoor storage of products. Progressive growth of the number of exsiccation ovens reaching the capacity of 1.200 cube meters per cycle. The offices block was terminated.
In 2005 the sawing line was substituted with a last generation machinery of the known Italian company PRIMULTINI.

The Banja Luka region, where is Lipa, has always been one of the best areas in the world for beech timber, particularly appreciated for it light and homogeneous coloration, the absolute absence of a red heart and a stable fiber.
