The Doorwerth castle - anno 1260 – is a few steps away. A unique atmosphere to find and select reclaimed materials.

Sustainable entrepreneurship and 100% FSC recycling 

In addition to a great look and high quality, our materials add sustainability to your project. Nearly all our products are reclaimed wood by origin. When you use our products, no trees needed to be cut in order to realise your project. Our wood is free of chemicals or other environmental threatening processes. 

On request we can provide your wood with a 100 % FSC recycling certificate.

History 

Frank Pouwer, owner of Frank Pouwer Reclaimed Wood, acknowledges the recycling and reclaiming of materials as craftsmanship. ‘’I was sixteen years old when I saw a new country house being built at the Palmesteyn estate near Deil, using the remains of the old castle. This was the starting point for my current enterprise. Ever since this moment I feel passionate about giving honest materials from the past a new life in order to create something new.”

Nowadays, 30 years later, wood is shipped to our yard from all over the world. Examples are barnwood from Canada, castle oak from France, and pine beams from Switzerland. The company has grown to one of Europe’s largest wood traders specialised in reclaimed materials.
