Across Europe Dunster House are constantly looking for opportunities to expand on the already rapidly growing business. We now own over 14 factories which are spread across 7 sites all over Europe. Each of these factories is unique in their own way manufacturing and delivering the finest timber products. In Hungary we have 2 facilities, the first of which is our newly developed warehouse with 35 production workers manufacturing our timber products. The second facility is our biggest with 37 members of staff operating including office staff and production workers.
The main production facility has been open since 2007 and our newer factory was opened in 2012 with Laci Dörnyei at the helm overseeing the entire process. Boldogfa differs from our other production factories as they also produce metal work for other businesses and the new warehouse which is currently being expanded. Both of our facilities in Hungary manufacture a smaller range of products such as Climbing Frames, Gazebos and Fence Panels as well as our other popular timber products. In keeping with our family run business philosophy across Europe, Boldogfa employ people from the local community and you will often find wife’s, husbands, brothers and sisters working side by side in our factories.
The Boldogfa facility over the years has seen a steady increase in upgraded machinery to help cope with demand and bring the finest products to our customers. One particular upgrade we are proud of is our pressure treatment tank. On site the factory used to have a smaller treatment tank that added a green treatment to the timber but since then has been upgraded to a much larger tank that now adds one of the best brown timber preservatives, Tanalith ‘E’ Tanatone. The new pressure treatment tank can hold a lot more timber meaning productivity is higher so we can deliver products quicker.
Across Europe we are always looking to upgrade our machinery and Hungary is lucky enough to possess some of the finest cutting edge machines that help making the process quicker, for example the CNC machine that is programmed to cut metal for our hinges and doors with distinct precision. Some our machines can be as simplistic as our pressing machine that produces sawdust briquettes which the company sell onto our customers to ensure that their homes are kept warm as briquettes are the perfect fuel and kindling to start a fire.
Boldogfa are committed to providing the best environment for their staff. On their new site built in 2012 which has 12 acres of land they are currently building a new facility next to the 60m x 20m warehouse and the new facility will stand at 40m long and 30m wide. The older facility is also currently having work done to it to with an older building being renovated and turned into accommodation for their staff to live in. With the continued growth of the company the future looks very bright for our site in Hungary with the prospect of even more machinery and living quarters on the horizon.
