A Romanian company, manufacturer of staves and barrels of oak for storage of wine, is looking for agents or distributors to sell its products. The company has a production area of 3 ha. with an annual production estimated at 6.500 barrels / year.

The company is located in Romania, in northern part of Transylvania and has as line of business the manufacturing of staves and barrels of oak destined to maintain and ennoble wines. The company is looking for agents and distributors with suitable networks.
In order to obtain the best quality staves, the company is watching rigorously the selection and reception of the most beautiful logs of oak in Romania. After splitting them up and sorting the resulting staves, the products follow a process of natural drying. For 2 years, the wood is blown of by the winds, rains and snows and in the end the result is a uniformed colour and drying of a faultless quality. The staves storehouse stretches on a surface of 2 ha and assures regularity and homogeneity concerning the making of barrels.

A second reuse of the barrel for wine storage offers 60% to 70% of the intake provided by a new barrel.
