Strizivojna Hrast is one of the most significant wood-processing companies engaged in the production and trade of wood. The company has been operating since 1996 in Strizivojna, near Đakovo, and even more than 90% of its income is exported. It is 100% privately owned and today employs more than 460 workers. Most products go to Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Sweden. The first product of the company was spruce timber, and today the company manufactures elements, has its own wet drier, performs propagation of planks, propelling the elements for making the elements and has a lamella flooring. It is interesting that the company was the first in Croatia to operate a cogeneration plant for the production of electric and thermal energy based on combustion of wood biomass. The project was launched with the aim of producing its own electrical and thermal energy using resources from existing production (forest and wood biomass).
