About us

WDE Maspell has been synonymous with vacuum wood drying since 1962 and with high-temperature thermal vacuum treatments since 2010.
We are now in our third generation, and have organised our business to meet the challenges of the global market in the field of vacuum drying and heat treatment for wood modification.

In recent years, we have embarked on a process of internationalisation that allows us to have a network of agents, collaborators and licensees in many countries, on all continents.

Experience and expertise, combined with a genuine passion for wood, have earned our technologies an impressive reputation.
Innovation is another of our hallmarks: the European Commission awarded us the "Seal of Excellence" for two consecutive years, in 2018 and 2019, an important recognition of our passion and dedication.
Today, we produce Vacuum Dryers with two different technologies: 'Press' and 'Air'.
The Thermo Vacuum System (TVS) is a world exclusive, 100% eco-sustainable (in terms of both process and end product), which allows our customers to modify the main properties of the wood to achieve greater durability and modify its mechanical properties, colour and other characteristics.

Finally, our approach to handling requests is based on knowledge and a full understanding of each individual customer's drying or heat treatment needs. This is an important part of our sales process, because it ensures that the customer receives the best possible solution.

We are not only manufacturers, but also consultants in the drying and heat treatment of wood.
