On 14 June 2023, the new premises of the Paged LabTech Research and Development Centre in Pisz were officially opened. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, which enables the company to carry out tests on wood, composites and wood-based panels for customers of Paged companies and to carry out complete product certification. This is an important step for the company in its efforts to further develop innovative products that boost its competitive advantage on the market.
Paged LabTech’s new headquarters is located at 1 Kwiatowa Street in Pisz and is one of the most modern laboratories of its kind in the world. The building was constructed from wood and plywood, reflecting the company’s commitment to sustainable and low carbon footprint solutions.
