Quality, innovation and collaboration.
Since 1968, Parklex has provided architects, decorators, master builders and builders with a wide range of solutions with their products manufactured from natural wood for use in facings, flooring and ceilings. Parklex is a dynamic company on the cutting edge, with a professional team focused on the needs of their clients.
Since Parklex is a product that can be used in both interiors and exteriors, it is subjected to constant wear from sunlight, humidity and abrasion in traffic areas. This is why a large part of the effort and investment in the area of R&D is spent on guaranteeing the durability and material stability of Parklex facings.
The materials used consist of resins, fibers and natural wood laminates, the product of the most advanced technology and combined with cutting-edge innovation, in accordance with current architectural trends.
The result of its history of collaborating with architects, master builders and designers, Parklex today has earned the trust of nationally and internationally renowned architects who use Parklex in their most emblematic works.

Constant dedication to providing a good product.
Each type of Parklex is subjected to a different production process, depending on its final application: interiors, exteriors, damp areas, etc.
The base is always high-density laminated wood with a paper fiber core that has been treated with thermosetting resins and compressed at high pressure and temperature.
The surface is always made from 100% natural wood, treated according to its application: to resist special weather conditions or to perfectly resist the intensive use it might receive in interiors.
Perfect adaptation to the project design is an essential requirement. That’s why the technology used to manufacture Parklex allows us to apply different finishes, all in natural wood, to integrate them completely into the environment that is required for each project.
The variety of finishes and colors in natural and dyed panels sets Parklex apart as a result of its versatility, making it the ideal covering from any type of project.
Providing service on an international level has meant establishing an extensive network of Parklex distributors on all five continents. This allows us to work more closely with our clients and offer them better service in a way that is more accessible to them. It also lets us understand their needs perfectly and first hand.
