Scheiffele-Schmiederer KG is a mid-sized family-run timber wholesaler with a 170-year history and six outlets in the Southern German states of Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg:
Dillingen a. d. Donau, Ruhpolding, Egling a. d. Paar, Plattling, Philippsburg, and Ulm.
Alongside the wholesaling business, which serves professional customers such as carpenters, timber builders, prefabricated house builders, and retailers, the company operates a moulding plant and produces wood briquettes at its Dillingen site. Four timber stores – in Dillingen, Egling, Plattling and Ruhpolding – carry all the full range of products expected these days of a timber merchant. In Dillingen, Egling, Ruhpolding and Philippsburg we also have permanent “timber in the garden” shows for our customers’ benefit.
With more than 150 staff and a large fleet of lorries, Scheiffele-Schmiederer KG currently serves more than 9,000 customers throughout Southern Germany and nearby parts of the neighbouring countries. Over 6,500 different articles are kept in stock at all times in roofed-over warehouses with a total of about 95,000 square metres of floor space. The firm, which was founded more than 170 years ago, is now run by two generations: Richard Schmiederer senior and Karl Schmiederer senior together with their sons, Richard Schmiederer junior and Karl Schmiederer junior.
