Holzindustrie Schweighofer, with its head office in Vienna, is a strong company with six production sites in Romania and Germany. We have had strong roots in Romania in particular for many years. In 2003, we opened our first sawmill in Sebeș, Romania, where the company now operates three sawmills, a blockboard factory and a panels factory. In October 2015, a sawmill in Kodersdorf, Germany, was added to the group. Our products are sold in around 70 countries across the world.
Our success is based on the regions we work in - we respect and value them. We therefore actively support numerous charity projects in the regions around our mills. Between 2002 and 2015, Holzindustrie Schweighofer invested €778 million euros in projects focussing on education, health care and social services in Romania. In our state-of-the-art mills we provide around 2,700 jobs, many of which are located in economically disadvantaged regions. On top of that, some 10,000 jobs have been created in related industries.
