Pfeifer has its seat in Kundl since 1978. We produce here in the Tyrolean Unterland trimmed timber, planed goods, timber pellet and thanks to the closed added value chain and the energy reuse of bark also green power for about 12.000 families.
In the high-performance saw mill in Kundl, Pfeifer cuts about one million cubic meters of timber per year. About 150,000 tonnes of timber pellets can be produced here per year. In the past 5 years, Pfeifer has massively invested in the expansion of pellet production in order to react among others to the strongly increased demand by the Italian market.
Sawn timber & profiled timber: 570,000 m³
Pellets: 150,000 tonnes

Production at the plant since 1978
Pfeifer starts the acquisition of the existing saw mill in Kundl for the first time with the production outside of its original seat in Imst.
Pfeifer integrates a first chipping line in the Kundl plant.
Pfeifer starts in Kundl the production of timber pellets - the begin of a success story. Kundl becomes then one of the major wood pellet plants of Central Europe.
The first power plant starts to work. Bark is thermally transformed into green power and heating for sawn timber drying and to dry the sawdust for the pellet production.
Pfeifer puts the second green power plant into operation. Both power plants are equipped with the most modern filter systems.
With the new construction of the high performance planing plant, Kundl strenghtens its status as supplier of high quality planed goods.
The new established sawn timber sorting meets the highest standards in terms of quality and efficiency.
