Monday, 27 April 2020 – Update 4
Without a doubt, the Corona crisis also has an effect on the European timber industry. Nevertheless we are currently operating in a market environment that is much more favourable than that of other sectors of the economy.
Our advantages include a raw material that keeps growing back and even in the age of the Coronavirus we remain a reliable buyer of round timber and source ample round timber from within a radius of approx. 150 km around our locations in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic.
Essential product groups such as bio fuels, packaging timber and pallet blocks are still in high demand. With our delivery capacity we make an important contribution to supplying the public with basic goods. Our production plants respond to export restrictions and short-term reductions in demand with adapted capacities. It’s good to know that confirmed orders are still being dispatched across borders and new orders are accepted at any time! When construction sites are reopened in the important markets of Italy, France and Spain in early May, the demand for Pfeifer formwork products will increase again. For that, we are perfectly prepared and generally able to deliver.
Our contact persons in Sales continue to be available for your enquiries and orders without restrictions! You can consult them at any time via telephone or video conference.
We remain your reliable partner, even in tough times – with our proven products and direct communication via all channels.

And it also hits our industry hard. Production is currently continuing at all eight Pfeifer locations in line with declining demand. We are able to deliver confirmed orders across borders and new orders are accepted at any time.
It goes without saying that we take all necessary measures to ensure the comprehensive protection of our employees and partners. In all areas, the distance rules prescribed by the authorities are strictly complied with while strict hygiene and safety regulations ensure the health of all involved as well as our production capability. Administration and management are available to from home without restrictions.
Especially our product segments biofuels, packaging timber and pallet blocks are of systemic importance in times like these. Our customers produce pallets for the food industry and thus the basis for maintaining the economic cycle, at least in its basic features. The demand for wood briquettes and pellets also remains high. With our ability to supply, we make an important contribution to the basic supply of the population throughout Europe.
We are and remain your strong partner.
