About us

The story of the family-owned company Montpreis started in 1991 when Janko Robič decided to start trading with wood under the hayrack. His wife Majda supported his business idea and so they starting building and broadening the company step by step, yet with joint and clear vision: offering appropriate and quality wood to the clients from Slovenia and abroad and having a fair and trustworthy business relation with them.

It all started coming true with the purchase of Bongioanni sawmill. At the same time the company was able to employ more people. We began producing several quality products which were offered to all the wood industry and furniture-producing companies. Many companies recognized our experiences and reliability which was resulted in long-term business cooperation. Also customers from Europe and other countries came to visit us more and more often.

However, there were also hard times which Janko and Majda accepted as new challenges. The economy crisis during which most of the larger wood-processing companies collapsed, encouraged them to start cooperating with Far East markets.
