- Kategorie: Press
24. February 2020 | The firm of Ch. Borchard Holzwerk received the SWISS KRONO certificate for producing MAGNUMBOARD® modules at DACH+HOLZ International 2020, thus becoming an official licensee for this sturdy timber construction system from SWISS KRONO.
Managing Director Sven Pietzsch and his authorized deputy, Matthias Weise, formally accepted the document. “We regard MAGNUMBOARD® OSB as an attractive alternative to glulam”, stated Pietzsch. “We are therefore making appropriate investments in order to produce and sell these modules.” Ch. Borchard Holzwerk is spending about 700,000 euros on a Technowood plant for joining SWISS KRONO OSB boards into modules and flexibly prefabricating these with millimetre precision.
The Hildesheim, Germany-based company was established more than 140 years ago. Today its 50+ staff include carpenters, foremen, master craftsmen, technicians and engineers. Ch. Borchard Holzwerk leverages decades of experience and corresponding expertise to fashion the entire spectrum of manual and engineered timber constructions. This includes producing and assembling timber frame structures and truss connector plates and selling windows, doors, parquet and associated accessories on its own account.
“Ch. Borchard Holzwerk have convinced us that they fully meet our requirements for joining our group of licensees”, stated Uwe Jöst, Head of OSB Sales of the SWISS KRONO Group. “Not only due to the firm’s size, but above all because of its many years of experience in flexibly meeting customers’ wishes and the fact that it is equipped with a fleet of state-of-the-art machines.”
