About Us


Quality is a family tradition
The story behind La.So.Le. Est (Lavorazione Sottoprodotti Legno – Wood By-product Processors) goes hand in hand with the Garzitto family history: since 1962, the Garzitto’s have marked every step of the long road towards a company reputation that has progressively unfolded into its current standing as one of Italy’s and Europe’s market leaders in engineered wood flour for industry and wood chip for animal breeding.

A success story built and consolidated on the business acumen of the company owners and by their constant and unremitting focus on quality at all levels of the production cycle: from sourcing to processing through to delivery.

Growth has been profoundly underpinned by the company’s basic values: sobriety, reliability and a “family” care for the customer. These values are stronger now than ever before in the company’s top management, which has now reached its third generation.

The company is certified ISO 9001
