Wood is not just a material; wood is much more. Wood is life; wood is nature; wood is charming and spreads warmth. For more than 50 years, we have passionately handled this natural material, an activity that has shaped our opinions and actions. Wood determines our view of the world and our philosophy. It provides the elementary basis of our work. We strive to offer the highest quality to our customers, in terms of the quality of our wood, on the one hand, and the quality of our services, on the other hand. Only a combination of both can turn customers into satisfied customers. For us, processing a natural, renewable raw material means aligning our work to aspects of sustainability.
This is completely natural for us and an obligation at the same time. Our production processes are certified in accordance with the currently applicable FSC®, ift* and PEFC™ codes of practice for the most important wood species. All wood waste materials are re-used to generate energy and our photovoltaic systems ensure an excellent energy balance. Our skills and experience that have grown over decades and our competent personnel make us valuable partners and a source of new ideas.
