TIMELINE

Our story begins in 1969 and today - 2019 - we celebrate fifty years of collaboration and commitment alongside the wood and furniture sector companies. A history made of passion and competence, which has allowed us to become one of the most important international testing, certification and research institutes.

A long journey made of satisfactions and hardships, but above all of the desire to keep going forward, demonstrating to ourselves and others that we have a lot to say ... a path that we feel obliged to share with you within this section of our website.
