About us

Welcome to the growth industry

In Austria’s most densely forested province, tradition meets curiosity and
a hunger for research. This unique combination of qualities results in impressive economic figures. With 5300 companies and a gross value of production totalling some 5 billion euros, Styria’s timber industry is one of the country’s strongest industrial sectors, securing employment for 55,000 people.

Our companies are mostly based in rural areas. There they are responsible for boosting regional value-added and export all over the world. As a pioneer for groundbreaking timber technology, Styria attracts people with a passion for wood to Austria from all corners of the earth.

Making the new possible

We stand for sustainable renewal, innovative applications and true progress. This way we ensure the future viability of our sector – for the sake of coming generations!

As an innovation driver, networker, market opener and ambassador for Styria’s timber industry, we help to make sure our companies always stay a step ahead. Cooperating with 155 firms and research centres, we bank on growth through innovation.

To reinforce the economic strength of Styria, our firms employ well-qualified staff to develop new products and launch them on international markets.
