Even today the Binder family still support the brand name of binderholz. A passion for wood and commitment to the business are the foundation of Binder's philosophy. What began sixty years ago, initially in the timber trade, has now evolved beyond the saw mill to encompass a much more comprehensive wood processing operation. New standards are continuously being implemented in the domain of engineering, product innovation and architectural design. Meanwhile the third generation of the Binder family retains overall management of the company and furthermore maintains their predecessors’ original inspiration for the product. A passion for wood and an entrepreneurial commitment is the ethos of the binderholz Company. Thereby is ensured that the name of binderholz shall forever remain what it symbolizes today: that is the byword for the highest quality wood. Franz Binder senior turned his passion for wood into a profession during the 1950s. This passion is already being experienced by the third generation of the Binder family in the vision, innovation and enormous commitment of all its staff.
