Chanovice is located at the heart of one of Europe’s largest forested areas, the Bavarian-Bohemian forest. The quality of raw material is unique: In hardly any other region, spruce wood has such a high density as here.
As unique site of the Pfeifer Group, Chanovice is able to process up to six metres high round timber. Also unique at Pfeifer: The complete round timber range can be processed according to diverse cut techniques from the smallest to the largest diameter (up to 100 cm).
At this fully integrated production site, the delivered round timber is processed 100% into a diverse product range. In sawn timber, solid wood panels, shuttering panels, green power and wood pellets.
In Chanovice, the chance of forest wealth has been recognized and a small saw mill has been put into operation. At the same time begins the production of prefabricated houses.
The construction of a new saw mill goes hand in hand
with the production start of
glue-laminated timber and pellets.
Construction solid timber is introduced in the product range and a new access way is created.
A new planing plant is put into operation, as well as a new sorting plant.
The Pfeifer Group takes over the Chanovice site and announces the investment of 35 millions Euro. For 450 employees this means a long term secure workplace.
The biomass power plant is lighted for the first time.
