Timber Processing

At ZIEGLER you as a customer always receive products of first-class quality, which are tailored to your wishes. In addition to timber for construction, packaging and industrial purposes, we also produce spruce and pine products for DIY customers.

Wood is one of the most important raw materials in the construction industry. At ZIEGLER we can provide sawn timber of first-class quality in a plant that combines five sawmills in one. That’s usually only available in Scandinavia.

The companies at one glance

Ziegler Holzindustrie GmbH, Plößberg

In our headquarters in Plößberg, everything revolves around timber.
The sawmill in the Betzenmühle is the largest sawmill of its kind in Europe. Every day, almost 400 trucks arrive there loaded with round timber, which we process into slats, boards and beams on site. Then we send the sawn and planed goods around the globe – even as far as Japan and Australia.
We only use wood from sustainable forestry management in our local region.
The approximately 600 employees process around 2.1 million solid cubic metres of timber each year.

Ziegler Forstservice GmbH, Plößberg

The main task of our forestry efforts is to maintain and create a stable and healthy forest that meets ecological, economic, climatic and social requirements. Our team at Ziegler Forestry Services is committed to this sustainable process on a daily basis.

Holz-Zentrum-Ziegler GmbH, Pressath

The Pressath site currently produces planed timber for the DIY sector, as an expanded production site with the preliminary products of the Plößberg timber industry. The existing production lines there will be further expanded over the next few years and supplemented with the latest generation of machine technology.
The 120,000 m² site offers ample space and the appropriate infrastructure for the further major plans of Ziegler Holzproduktion (Timber Production). We are creating many new jobs, as well as state-of-the-art production technology at our Pressath location.
