Pfeifer began in 2008 on an area of 50 hectares in the Hessian Lauterbach with the complete new construction of a fully integrated production site. Also in Lauterbach 100% of delivered round timber is processed. Until now Pfeifer has invested around 150 millions Euros in the modern plant.

With the ground breaking for the new Lauterbach site comes also the starting signal of the largest single investment in the company history of the Pfeifer Group.

Also in Lauterbach begins the pellet production. Further drying chamber are put into operation.
A second pellet silo with 9,000 tonnes of storage capacity is put into operation.
