Our production is one of the main parts of our workflow and is responsible for the quality of our rettenmeier® products.
100% added value
OF EACH TREE
Most of the raw material processed in our factories grew up in our forests for 80-100 years. By removing the tree trunk from the forest, we take responsibility for ensuring that this raw material is used in a meaningful and sustainable manner. We live up to this responsibility by adding 100% of the tree to value creation and thus creating a completely closed value creation cycle.
The sawn timber produced in the sawmill is then subjected to further value creation in our numerous refining systems. This is how rough-sawn, planed or impregnated slats, planed goods, profiled timber, decking, solid wood panels and much more are created.
No chip is left behind. The sawing by-products (wood chips, sawdust and wood shavings) generated during the sawing and planing process are used to produce wood briquettes and pellets. These are CO2-neutral energy sources, because when they are burned they only release as much CO2 as the trees absorbed while they were growing.
