The CompanyExperience in four generations

To meet the requirements of a state-of-the-art saw mill we continously expanded our location in Vilshofen a. d. Donau and passed on our experience from generation to generation. Today the company grounds comprise the size of about 22 ha, which corresponds to about 31 football fields. We are proud to have grown from a family business to a high-performance partner within the timber industry.

Our most important good – our employees.

An honest communication, a constant dialogue at eye level and secure, state-of-the-art workplaces are just three aspects of the weinzierl philosophy.

From young trainees to experienced and long-time employees – who wants to be successful today, has to rely on a functioning team. As a grown owner-managed company we attach great importance to a transparent and honest communication among each other. Today we employ about 120 employees – which make us one of the biggest regional employers.

For every 100 solid cubic meters of round log we produce we secure one workplace within the timber industry.
With approximately 650.000 solid cubic meters each year we secure work for 6500 full-time employees within the different industry sectors – a huge number which fills us with pride.

100 solid cubic meters ≈ 1 full-time employee

650.000 solid cubic meters ≈ 6.500 full-time employees

Family-owned and committed to the raw material wood with all our strength: our sawmill combines history, tradition and the present at the same time. Our success is based on a down-to-earth attitude. But only the entire Weinzierl team makes the company what it is now.
