We are a full-service manufacturer of quality millwork specializing in
flooring and trim. From fabrication facilities in Lima, Peru, we deliver a wide
range of custom and standard architectural products in a variety of tropical
species.

We use woods that are new to some of the construction industry in the US
including a species in the Mahogany family. This wood is very similar in grain
and color to its relatives, Honduran Mahogany and Spanish Cedar, and is
available in abundance.

We purchase certified timber from indigenous communities in the Amazon
basin located in Madre de Dios which is just east of Cuzco ( Macchu Picchu) and
borders Brazil. This supply philosophy is promoted by the World Wildlife
Federation, and is of very low impact on the environment. We have our FSC
certification for all the wood products we carry.

We have been in business in Lima, Peru since 2002. We are a group of
architects, engineers as well as craftsmen, and our knowledge of the
construction industry and precision woodworking combine to make us a
contributing member to any design team.
