Passion for Timber

Lauterbach / Germany

The production of pine and spruce sawn timber and molded pallet blocks started at Pfeifers newest location Lauterbach in the summer of 2009. Just like at the Unterbernbach and Uelzen locations, the energy needed to dry the woodcuttings is generated by our modern and environmentally friendly biomass power station. The bio electricity generated is fed into the public grid.

History of the production pine Lauterbach

  • The county seat of Lauterbach is mentioned in a document for the first time in 812.
  • The oldest brewery of Hesse has been operating here since 1527.
  • The groundbreaking ceremony for the new site of Pfeifer Group took place in 2008; we were operating at full speed a year later.
  • The site pin for the city in the Vogelsberg district was put on the map of Pfeifer Group in 2009. Beside being conveniently located close to the A5 and A7 highways, the decisive reason for opting to settle there was the proximity to timber as our raw material. After all, 42 percent of the federal state of Hesse is covered by forests.
  • A facility added in 2012 produces premium-quality pellets. The volume invested thus far in the 50-hectare compound in Lauterbach adds up to 150 million euros.
