Wood, our history since 1832
We would like to spare just a few words to speak about our company, our great passion for wood that has been handed down through so many generations. Our deeply-rooted history consists of more than 150 years of experience in this sector, yet this adventure did not begin with timber, but with the whip handles made from “huckberry”, a particularly elastic and long- lasting tree that grows spontaneously on rocky land. In fact, it is from Trentino, the mountainous region par excellence that the Andreatti family originates.
Our company activities which started with whip handles gradually continued to expand until the post- war period (1920) to include also two resinous wood sawmills that imported spruce and larch trunks from all over Europe.
The head office of this important enterprise that has broadened its range of treated products to include precious types of hardwood such as oak, walnut and cherryis situated in Bassano del Grappa.
15 years ago, the furniture crisis made us combine the production and the marketing of sawnwood with that of pre-finished flooring and this latter activity has become our “core business”. Our company transformation started in an ambitious way and together with the great willingness to “put ourselves on the line” by investing in new technologies and choosing more suitable materials in order to offer a product that is of the utmost technical and aesthetic quality.
The motivation towards innovation blended with the fundamental element of the manual dexterity of the craftsmen during the processing and finishing stages as well as our productive flexibility are our strong points that allow us to be appreciated worldwide and these are the ingredients needed in order to create unique and unmistakable projects.
Today, Bassano Parquet presents a rich catalogue with 16 types of wood that enhance our collections with the most exclusive painted, oiled, brushed, hand- scraped and heat-treated finishes.
