OSS Bali has been establishing in Indonesia since 2003 and has a fully operational and functioning joinery division in Bali producing high quality timber doors, windows, flooring wall / ceiling cladding and decorative timber panels.

We have decided to expand our business to include a furniture manufacturing division to more fully utilize the skill sets of our workforce.
