Press Release binderholz CLT BBS extends its capacity

Binderholz builds its 3rd cross laminated timber plant to extend its large-format capacity at its Burgbernheim site in Germany.

Binderholz Bausysteme, a subsidiary of the Binderholz Group, has been successfully producing Binderholz CLT BBS for 10 years.

Dynamic growth in recent years is now being taken into account and the company is investing in a new works for large-format board production with corresponding factory assembly capacity at its Burgbernheim site in Germany. The company is drawing on the proven components of its Unternberg site in Austria when it comes to production systems, and combining this with the technical knowledge and expertise it has acquired over the years. The works will become operational in December 2016.

During the winter months, the company also invested in extending product and factory assembly capacity at its main site in Unternberg, Austria. Following this investment, Binderholz Bausysteme now has a production capacity of 200,000 m³ of binderholz CLT BBS.

Its comprehensive Europe-wide product sales and distribution coupled with comprehensive technical advice and service have established Binderholz as the expert with cutting-edge knowledge and expertise in solid wood building solutions. This expanded capacity will also meet the market growth in BBS generated in Australia, Singapore, the USA and Canada.

BSH production in Burgbernheim, Germany, will cease at the end of August. This volume will be compensated for by improvements and extensions at the Jenbach site in Austria and BSH production will increase to 280,000 m³ per year.

2015 was a successful year for the entire Binder Group. Investments are being made at all 9 sites in Austria, Germany and Finland in 2016. Over 900,000 m³ of dimension lumber will be machined into solid wood products this year in the Group.
