Price is only one factor in selling. Consistent quality, product yield, sawing time and a punctual delivery,
In the end, are even more important in determining the actual worth (value) of a purchase.
At Giorgio Marin, we constantly work as supplying a product of great worth (value)!
Different wood species for different types of products:logs for slicing veneer and timber sawn in boules, square edged and unedged boards, natural or steamed, fresh and seasoned naturally or kiln dried, cut to size dimensions or squares… a complete line of products to suit every clients’ needs.
The care and attention to detail that we put into our production and into the preparation of the packs of wood we deliver, are clear to see. Each pack is coloured on the ends (each one of our grades has its own colour) and identified with its specific number and quantity of pieces. The infinite attention to quality is certified by the “GM” mark you will find on our packs.
It is from late 90’s / early 2000 that our higher grades are named SUPER PRIME as written on our packs. Our SUPER PRIME has become and considered as the higher standard grade ( the benchmark ) in the Eur White Oak market.
SUPER PRIME is not only a given name, it is a grade with its rules much more selected than a standard PRIME. To assure this quality we have decided years ago to import only particular chosen logs from specific areas and saw them in our Italian sawmill where we have a step by step control of all production phases. Along the recent years more companies have started to name their higher grade SUPER PRIME often even using our blue colour despite their standard grades do not match our quality ( for uniformity of colour, defects, average widths, … )
That’s why on our SUPER PRIME packs you find an additional “pay off” THE FIRST THE ORIGINAL THE GENUINE . You that are buying this grade from us for sure know that inside these packs there are all our know how and efforts to keep a stable and high quality product.
