European market leader in
wood veneer processing
Decospan has been a committed family business for three generations with an insatiable passion for wood. We try to pass on this preference to everyone in and around the company.
As a market-oriented lifestyle company we also like to think along with the prescriber, the processor and the client to develop total solutions based on this beautiful and renewable raw material. We dream of allowing everyone to enjoy wood by providing the tools with which this noble product can be easily integrated into our daily living environment.
