In 1957, Franz Binder, sr. founded the since then existing independent family business binderholz as a small “one-gate sawmill” in Fügen in Zillertal of Tyrol.

Calculation & project management BSH special construction - Jenbach site
“The baseboard on my “wooden path” was laid already during countless afternoons in my grandfather’s carpentry workshop.” This is how I started an apprenticeship as a carpenter after completing my university entry exam. I was fascinated by the material wood and its properties, so the decision was quickly made to study wood engineering at the polytechnic university in Rosenheim. While I still dreamed of Ghana in West Africa during my practical semester, I decided to emigrate to neighbouring Tyrol much to the dismay of my Bavarian ancestors.
I then came to binderholz in Jenbach for my bachelor’s thesis in the spring of 2017. Besides my final paper (digitalisation and automation for the glulam compound), I had the opportunity to gather a lot of valuable experiences in the special construction department.
Having been reassured in my opinion of having found a modern company that acts responsibly at the same time, I was all the happier when I was taken over into employment at the site after completing my internship contract. The focus of my work picks up on my final paper and is currently on work preparation and project management in special construction as well as data analyses for process optimisation.
I am very happy about the confidence and openness binderholz has given me in wanting to support me in my extra-occupational master’s degree program and I hope to be able to return the favour and make a contribution to the successful future of binderholz.”
As diverse and multi-facetted as our product range are also our working regions - all have in common a very good infrastructure, and appealing sports and recreational offers - for the best possible use of the time off work and social networking.
Tyrol | Austria
The Fügen and Jenbach sites of the binderholz group ae located at the “heart of the Alps” in Northern Tyrol. This is where you see mighty peaks, authentic landscapes and many valleys such as the Zillertal and Achental. A well-developed infrastructure that also includes the state capital Innsbruck offers a large variety of possibilities for recreation and sports.
Salzburg | Austria
Three sites of our corporate group are located in the state of Western Upper Austria. Salzburgerland is known for its numerous lakes and Salzburg, the city of Mozart with a historic district that is part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage. It is also the place of the famous annual Salzburg Festival.
Bavaria | Germany
Our two sites Burgbernheim and Kösching are located in the south of Germany in the state of Bavaria - a region that is very strong economically set in an appealing landscape. Kösching is just 10 km away from Ingolstadt. The former fortress town is by now a modern large city with about 130,000 residents. The region around Burgbernheim is called Frankenland and it is characterised by the traditional culture and pretty surroundings. The small town “Rothenburg ob der Tauber” with its world-famous medieval historic district can be reached in a 15-minute drive. The nearest large city is Nuremberg 65 km away.
Baden-Württemberg | Germany
In this region in the south west of Germany, binderholz took over the Oberrot and Wolfegg sites of the Klenk-Holz Group in 2017.
Oberrot is located in the nature park “Schwäbisch-Fränkischer Wald” at the Fichtenberger Rot, in the predominantly Franconian north east of Baden-Württemberg, about 12km south-west from the district capital Schwäbisch Hall and 65 km north-east from the state capital Stuttgart.
The district capital Schwäbisch Hall has a historic centre and it is known for its old salt spring. Beautiful landscapes, castles and fortresses invite to stay.
The municipality of Wolfegg is a climatic healing spa town and located in the middle of the district of Ravensburg. The hilly alpine upland is characterised by its intense grassland agriculture, dozens of ponds/swimming lakes, and the largest continuous forest area of Upper Swabia. Enjoy the view of the mountain range of the Bavarian, alpine upland and Swiss Alps from the town outskirts - an extraordinary cultural and recreational offer makes Wolfegg a cross-regional attraction.
Brandenburg | Germany
The former Klenk site in Baruth is located in this region in the east of Germany, south of Berlin, in the district of Teltow-Fläming - in the direct vicinity of the local logwood.
You can see many sights in this historic town, e.g. the town parish church of St. Sebastian, Baruth Castle or the Soviet cemetery of honour. But the region that is set in this pretty landscape also has to offer many opportunities for recreation and sports such as numerous climbing parks, kart tracks or the “Tropical Island”, a tropical theme park.
North Karelia | Finland
Located in this Finish region in the north of Europe, the production sites in Lieksa and Nurmes as well as the administrative site in Joennsu have been integrated in the binderholz group since January 2016. The impressive number of 2,200 beautiful lakes makes this area in Finland at the Russian border particularly special. Besides numerous cultural recreational offers, diverse winter sports are offered for (winter) athletes: jet ski, alpine skiing, rafting, hiking, dogsledding or snowshoeing - just to mention a few of the possibilities - or simply enjoy the picturesque surroundings and observing the impressive flora and fauna.
