Established since its foundation in 1822 in the heart of the main French walnut region in the Isère valley, the company "Scierie Forest" produces intermediate wood products.
These woods come from various hardwoods in the form of pre-flows, boules (planks) or square-edged pieces. Specialist in walnut, the company also works with chestnut, ash, cherry, pear, linden, oak, beech and acacia. As part of its production, it uses and perpetuates traditional techniques: the selection of walnut logs, log felling, log sorting and sawing, parboiling and drying.

The company supplies furniture manufacturers, cabinet-makers, flooring specialists, interior decorators, sculptors, but also boat or luxury car manufacturers. More than a third of production is exported.
