Fast construction combined with unquestionable technical qualities, thermal insulation, sturdiness, and economy are reasons why the number of houses built of wood around the world is increasing. FREZITE also has a growing range of solutions in cutting tools for log houses. Under the motto "We Love Wood", FREZITE continues to value this construction process and all who seek a more sustainable lifestyle, this system has zero carbon impact (passive house).
The positive outlook was made by the Chairman of FREZITE in an interview to the Portuguese digital newspaper "ECO". Even with a fall in turnover between 5% and 6% a year during the pandemic, the FREZITE Group did not lay-off or reduce the workforce and took advantage of the Covid-19 crisis to leverage other new business niches.
