Ziegler Group

The ZIEGLER GROUP is a globally active company with its headquarter in Plößberg/Upper Palatinate. The core business is wood processing.

In six decades, the Ziegler sawmill has developed into one of the largest sites of its kind in Europe. In addition to timber processing in Plößberg, Pressath and Hermsdorf, the group also includes the divisions logistics, mechanical engineering, forestry, decoration and prefabricated house construction with several locations.

With around 1400 employees, we are one of the largest employers in the region.

Despite the strong growth, we have remained a family business, which is still managed personally by the owners.
