Die Automobil-Handelsgruppe Beresa setzt auf natürliche Qualität: Für ihre neue Haupt-Geschäftsstelle im Zentrum von Münster (Westfalen), die am ersten September-Wochenende offiziell eröffnet wird, wählte der Vertragspartner von Mercedes-Benz individuelles europäisches Eichenfurnier der Firma Wehmeyer aus Havixbeck. Das gerne als „Filet des Baumes“ bezeichnete Holz wertet die Wilhelm Burg-Lounge, benannt nach dem gleichnamigen ehemaligen Inhaber der Handelsgruppe, optisch auf.

Dabei ist es laut Schmid ganz einfach: „Als ‚Parkett’ darf nur ein Holzfußboden mit einer Echtholz-Nutzschicht von mindestens 2,5 Millimetern bezeichnet werden“.
