Wood, a family heritage

 

Wood is a tradition of Calcaterra family, since the late 1950s.

Established in 1969 Legnonord was founded by Mario Calcaterra and his 3 sons Franco, Bruno and Marino, following some years of acquaintance to wood markets carried out with other companies.

Today Legnonord is run by the third generation of Calcaterra family, following the same guidelines set by grandfather Mario: quality, customer satisfaction, respect of all stakeholders and of the environment.

 

Legnonord’s core business is based on 3 main markets:

  1. 1) Supply of sawn timber, other wood based products and panels to the carpenters and industries producing luxurious interior and exterior furniture and decorations.
  2. 2) Supply of deckings and other marine timbers for the building of ports, floating pontoons, exterior leisure areas, hotels, private houses.
  3. 3) Supply of turn-key solutions for Hotels/Restaurants as well as private residences together with some key-partners and relying on long-term partnerships with the main luxury furniture industries in Italy.

 

Wood has been used in constructions since the dawn of human history. 

Wood grows naturally and is renewable. It is the most natural and human-friendly of all building materials and the one with the lowest impact and carbon footprint.

 

Our goal is to promote the culture and the use of wood in any possible aspect of human social life. We are committed to do so in compliance with the values transmitted us by our grandfather Mario, founder of Legnonord.

 

The respect of the environment starts with a responsible approach to the business. We are strongly dedicated to sustainable forestry and production practices and Legnonord has been among the first companies in Italy to obtain the FSC certification in 2004.

 

Among our projects: 

  1. a) Wood deckings for Prestige Village in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy where the first Harrod’s shop has been opened.
  2. b) Wood deckings for major leisure and commercial ports, including Genova port (home of the Genova International Boat Show), Ayla Marina Aqaba (Jordan), Porto Montenegro (Montenegro), Marina del Gargano (Manfredonia, Italy), Marina Novigrad (Croatia), Al-Fintas military port (Kuwait).
