Our Company

History

ALPACASA was founded in 1998 by Mr. David Janz. In the beginning our company was involved only in sawn timber products such as veneer, plywood and flooring wood for parquet manufacturing.

Since 2003 we have specialized in the extraction of essential oils from wood chips, obtained through steam distillation.

From mid 2007 and continuing with our constant improving strategy we introduced a rectification column, vacuum dehydration mixer, esterification reactor, and a QC lab equipped with GC analysis. Recently (2008) we started the distillation of other oils such as Lemmon Grass, Petit Grain, from local farmer fields and Vetiver from our own farm.
