Albers is the parquet wholesaler in the Netherlands for the needs of professional parquet installers and the trade for interior finishing. In summary, everything you need to lay and finish for a beautiful parquet floor.

IRSA has been supplying the owners Jef Luykx and Annie Raskin for over 20 years. The children Katrien and Stephan Luykx now run the company. The IRSA Lackfabrik Irmgard Sallinger GmbH was delighted to be able to support both companies for the anniversary celebrations on 03 and 04 November 2019.

Over the years, Albers has earned a good reputation for high-quality products and excellent customer service. The combination of wholesale and production also makes it possible to respond to many special requirements. Holz Bois and Albers together now cover a very large demand for parquet flooring and accessories in the Benelux countries.

For the marketing of the Habo production in 9mm solid parquet, contracts were concluded with 2 wholesalers in 1980: Albers in Weert and Holz Bois in Antwerp.

Holz Bois nv was founded in 1972 by Mrs Greta Braun (founded by Braun Bois in 1946) for the sale of African logs and parquet floors, such as mosaic and laminate on lace. In 1989, Jef Luykx and Annie Raskin were given the opportunity to take over this wholesale company.

The company Albers bv was founded in 1970 by Ben Albers for the sale of sawn timber, mosaics and strip parquet. After 28 years of cooperation and joint production, Habo and Holz Bois took over the company from Cor Albers in 2008 together with Edwin Cools.

Both wholesalers offer a wide range of parquet floors from various European countries, Asia and Africa.

Holz Bois nv and Albers are PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) certified. This is a global certification system that guarantees sustainable forest management. In particular, PEFC promotes environmentally friendly, socially beneficial and economically viable forestry. The PEFC label guarantees consumers that the product they buy comes from sustainably managed forests.
