DECOTEC is becoming more involved every day and is making progress in taking charge of its environmental impact in order to participate in the protection of the planet’s resources.
Aware of the ecological footprint that a company's activity can generate, DECOTEC strives to apply the principles of sustainable development throughout the manufacturing process of its bathroom furniture.
We have also invested in a wood cutting machine which optimizes cutting; so we cut our wood needs as accurately as possible to manufacture our furniture, taking care to preserve limited resources.
In addition, the remaining cuts are reused.
The possibility of custom manufacturing contributes to our desire to promote a mode of consumption that is more respectful of resources, both human and natural. DECOTEC chooses to produce as close as possible to its customers in order to limit its ecological impact.
