Located in Tuscany, the beating heart of the PleinAir industry, Palomar Srl is a leading company in the production of high-quality sandwich panels and semi-finished components for caravans and mobile homes. The company was founded in 2003 by the merger of three societies already present in the sector, headed by the Bagni, Giotti and Nencioni families and it’s now lead by a team of young entrepreneurs, skilled staff and avantgarde machinery to satisfy its customers with its premium services.
Palomar comprehends four production sites, in the industrial area of Bassetto in Certaldo, for a total of about 10,000 square meters.
SawmillThe first step of the production process, foresees the cutting of the planks through CNC machines with length optimizer and relative selection of defects to guarantee the quality of the product. In the assembly phase, in fact, only those selected materials are used.
AssemblyAccording to the established draft, given by the client, the technicians are able to design the realization of wooden and PVC frames following the costumer’s need: any type of panel has its own soul, its skeleton and on this we strive to give the right consistency and strength to finished product.
Poystyrene CutOne of the quality materials that are used for the construction of panels, both for campers and mobile homes, is polystyrene: highly ductile material that however needs the right support. As with cutting, thanks to new generation machines, we are able to make highly precise sections, so as to perfectly follow the project guidelines.
Panels CutEven once assembled and ready to be finished, a panel may need a further cutting or shaping: this is possible thanks to CNC sizing machines able to offer a very high percentage of precision and reliability.
PantographThe company has seven working centers with different sizes to make any type of panel. In this case too, the latest generation of machines follow what is commissioned to them during the design phase, but the precision and reliability of the pantographs themselves makes it possible to create not only high quality panels, but also structures capable of being assembled in a perfect way to the various situations that are required by customers and not just campers and mobile homes.
BoningThe company has six different gluing lines with polyurethane adhesive distributed flush, while great performance can be offered by the gluing line with polyurethane adhesive distributed with spray guns. For greater consistency and strength, 100% reactive hot melt adhesive lines are used, distributed by roller spreading machine and glue-based glue-based glueing.
Palomar core business is not only wood manufacturing and assembly of panels according to the needs and characteristics required by the customers but even more. Thanks to seven working centers equipped with CNC technology of different sizes and six bonding lines of liquid polyurethane, spray, hot melt and vinyl glue, the company is able to produce walls, roofs and floors for caravans and mobile homes and smaller elements such as doors, windows and different semi-finished products, even edged. Depending on the production season, employees range from 50 to 90 people to maintain a flexible structure. The continuous search for new materials and increasingly refined production methods means that the range of action of Palomar extends beyond the world of PleinAir, embracing the furniture, van and building sectors.
