The history of Astigarraga Kit Line began in 1985 in a small workshop in Azpeitia (Gipuzkoa). Its founder, Juan José Astigarraga, a woodworker with expert knowledge of the Basque forests, started out alone but had the finest raw materials in his hands: the pine wood from the surrounding area. He manufactured his first product with this wood, the wooden trestle, which he exported directly to the French market.
Shortly afterwards, his daughter Itziar joined the company. This was one of those reference milestones for any company, as it enabled uniting the knowledge of local forests with innovation, design and the creation of new products. So wooden trestles were joined by bottle racks, shelves, trunks, chests of drawers and sustainable wood boxes, among other products. However, we would not be what we are today without our distributors, the lungs of Astigarraga Kit Line.
We are very proud of our distributors. All of them: from large DIY chain distributors such as Leroy Merlin, Bauhaus, Bricoio, Mr Bricolage, E. Leclerc, Hellweg, Intergamma and Brico Depot to small hardware stores such as Optimus and Cadena 88 and DIY stores such as Servei Stacio in Barcelona.
Astigarraga Kit Line was born international. France was the first country where we made our debut. And that lung has gradually grown larger and larger, extending to other countries such as Portugal, Italy, Germany, Poland, Holland and Greece. This company reflects the growth of a small workshop that has now become the leading distributor of wooden trestles in Europe and a manufacturer of sustainable solid wood products.
