Origins & Values

The Company

The Gascogne group was born in 1925 on the initiative of a group of foresters from the Landes.  Today, our aim is to recycle and re-use maritime pine at all the stages of its transformation.  

Our activities focus on the vertical integration of the whole wood sector.

Gascogne Bois is the leading supplier of wood for pallets and packaging, with more than 170,000 m3 produced. It has one of the highest sawing capacities in France with more than 550,000 tons of logs used by the sites in Escource (40) Castets (40) et St Symphorien (33).

Its factories use state-of-the-art technologies for throughput, trimming, sorting and quality optimisation.

Its range, unique in its diversity, is a perfect illustration of its expertise and ability to innovate, establishing itself on French and European markets. With specific ranges designed for wood panelling, parquet flooring and decking, Gascogne Bois has emerged as a multi-specialist and stands out by its technical and aesthetic benefits: broad ranges of colours, numerous surface appearances, various dimensions and multiple finishes.

Gascogne Bois is a specialist in wooden interior and exterior decoration.
