Prugger family has been working with precious natural woods
for several generations. Our company started off as a sawmill and
has always been open to new techniques and working methods. Today it is
able to offer a wide range of natural wood products.
The Nordholz natural floor products quickly established
themselves as the company’s most popular product. From then on the
family firm became more and more successful and started to widen its
range of products to include floor products made from precious woods and
floor products for outside spaces. Today Nordholz is one of the
leading producers of natural floor products in Italy.
In December 2004 Nordholz acquired new offices, showrooms and warehouses
in Monguelfo. Here you can find our complete range of products on
display; you need to be able to see these products and to
feel to fully
appreciate their quality.
The Lipp Saw – A Treasure from the Past
In the past, working wood was an arduous, risky and exhausting business. It was simplified considerably when
Leonardo da Vinci invented the Venetian saw together with Venetian wood merchants in the 16th century.
The Lipp Saw, a board saw made of wood on the Brunstbach in Oberolang, worked successfully until 1958, when, after one hundred years of valuable service, it was superseded by technical advances and the rise of band saws.
Since July 2011 the Lipp Saw has adopted a new guise. This disused treasure has been newly restored and reflects the passion and affinity for wood as a material together with the enormous respect for and pride in what is now an idyllic gem on the part of its owner, Uwe Prugger. The Lipp Saw is intended to provide a present-day bridge to the past, offering visitors a glimpse of what was once such an invaluable way of living and working for rural people.
