About the SWISS KRONO GROUP
Having begun as a firm founded by the Austrian entrepreneur Ernst Kaindl in Menznau, Switzerland in 1966, today the SWISS KRONO GROUP is one of the world’s leading producers of engineered wood products. The owners and employees of the SWISS KRONO GROUP are acutely aware of their multiple responsibilities, namely to succeed in business, ensure top quality and protect the environment. Taking a long-term approach, they manufacture modern, environmentally sound products from wood, a renewable raw material. The group’s broad product portfolio is dominated by high-quality wood-based materials for housing construction, renovation and interiors.
SWISS KRONO Holding AG (www.swisskrono.com), based in Lucerne, Switzerland, currently has eleven subsidiaries in eight countries (Switzerland, Germany, France, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Russia and the United States) and employs more than 4,500 people. Each of the firms operates as an independent profit centre.
The SWISS KRONO GROUP will also continue to be a strong corporate group that sets clear standards in national and international competition with environmentally flawless wood-based materials. We take an integrated, holistic approach that ensures top quality, outstanding innovations and consistently high levels of customer satisfaction.
This includes our leadership in eco-friendly, healthy engineered wood products. We attach high priority to innovation and to developing new, even better products (the many examples include extremely low-emission OSB boards bonded without formaldehyde).
Our motto: Even better, even eco-friendlier, even healthier for living!
