KLAUSNER AUSTRIA, A PACEMAKER IN THE LUMBER INDUSTRY
The Klausner Group was founded in 1991, when Austrian Fritz Klausner built his mill in former East Germany as a green field investment. The company and sales management office, Klausner Trading International, is headquartered in Oberndorf, Austria, in close vicinity to the Klausner family‘s first sawmill founded in 1918 (closed in 1996).
Klausner mills are known to be among the most productive worldwide – and always a step ahead. CLIMATE PROTECTION - KLAUSNER IS DOING ITS PART. The Klausner Group is also committed to climate protection, taking measures aimed at reducing CO2 emissions in the long term. • Wood utilization following the principles of sustainability. • Heat generation using bark as a fuel. . Utilization of railway links to reduce truck shipments. • Construction of sawmills near sources of timber to reduce long–distance wood exports, which have been standard practice in the past And that’s not all. Projects targeted at reducing the CO2 emissions of company vehicles or installing solar cells an the roofs of Klausner mills have already been initiated. We also support the campaign HolzProKlima, that wants to bring the positive impact of greater use of wood products for the climate into the consciousness of the people and politics. We also planning the introduction of the environmental certificate ISO 14001 – a clear signal for active environmental protection. For more information contact Mrs Andrea Wurzenrainer:
