Company I-Les Iskra LLC started as a craft activity more than 40
years ago in a small village Gornji Ajdovec in Slovenian region of
Lower Carniola. Founder Pavel Iskra started to work in a small
workshop with only a basic machinery for wood processing. The
desire for better quality has driven him to expand his craft. By
2013 the company exceeded the limits of self-employment and
transformed into a limited liability company (LLC).
The company currently has 40 employees and also holds its own research department, which is responsible for development, optimization and quality of our production. Our company currently has two production locations - one in Gornji Ajdovec and another in Soteska. Wood production of our three-layer cross-laminated timber panel is a two stage process. The first stage of wood processing takes place in Soteska, where our own sawmill ensures us the independence from the changes and fluctuations in the market of wood assortments. Logs for processing are purchased in local forests, which ensures a high quality and important contribution to regional development, and also further promotes the use of Slovenian wood. Appropriately processed wood is then transported to Gornji Ajdovec, where the final stage takes place. This facility is used for wood drying, wood compression and production of three-layer cross-laminated timber panels with strong emphasis on the quality of the final wood product.
The further development of the company will be based on the installation of an innovative automated production. This will significantly increase the current volume of wood production under the control of qualified staff. This will reduce production costs and significantly increase the competitiveness of our products, three-layer cross-laminated timber. Teak decking
