INTRODUCTION

Gras Wood Wide is a master in European pine and Canadian western red cedar

As a stockholding importer, Gras Wood Wide has the largest stock of carefully selected quality pine from Sweden, Finland and Germany in all sizes, as well as top-quality western red cedar from British Columbia (Canada). We are also the place to come for specialist mill or monument restoration work, as we always have various heavy-duty dimensions of air-dried pine in stock.
Besides pine and western red cedar, we have also been the importer of Lunawood, the thermally modified spruce and pine from Finland for 20 years. The delivery programme is unique in that timber can be bought both as specified sets and in packages (and overboard). On request, the timber can be post-dried, treated, preserved, fire-retarded or given a top-quality finish at external partners. Gras Wood Wide is proud to announce that 99% of the traded timber is PEFC™ or FSC® certified and thus demonstrably produced sustainably.

SPECIALITY AREAS

Gras Wood Wide is often involved in projects for the preservation of historical monuments. As we import our own products, we are able to deliver quickly, also in case of deviating sizes, which is important for these kinds of restorations. The Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom, Slot Loevestein in Poederoijen, the Refugiehuis in Den Bosch, Paleis Noordeinde and Paleis Huis ten Bosch in The Hague are some of the best-known projects. We have mainly supplied pine, Oregon pine and western red cedar.

As the offspring of an old mill builders’ guild, it is fantastic to be able to report that many mills that have been restored in recent years have been supplied with the right materials by us.

It is generally known that the easiest way to achieve passive building (energy-neutral) is to build in and with wood. Therefore, timber-frame construction is the answer to passive building in the Netherlands. It may not be very popular in the Netherlands (yet), but it is all the more popular in our neighbouring countries. As specialists, we have been able to deliver various renowned wood frame construction projects.
We have in stock sawn pine in extra heavy dimensions for the constructions of restoration projects and western red cedar for facades, coming from the primeval land of timber construction: Canada.
