Finaspan-Marien (Belgium)

Finaspan-Marien, a company with roots going back to 1890 when founding father Louis Marien started the saw-milling timber industry, is still a very active producer of MDF boards nowadays. The company became well known for having built 40000 green houses in the Hoeilaart region and having produced up to 15000 wooden grape boxes each day in its hay days. This factory however was abandoned in 2002, around the time when the company specialized in MDF fabrication, rather than veneered plywood, block board or chipboard.
