Weinberger’s success story began with a farm in the Austrian province of Carinthia, which also included some forested property. Four generations ago, it was decided to exploit that capital through commerce. The business based in the Lavant Valley increased its ability to add value by building a small sawmill. The following decades were characterised by the expansion of the site and extensions to sawmill. A log yard was created, for instance, and parquet production was commenced as was the construction of the machining plant for profile boards and timber for building. All investments were designed to help the company develop into a high-tech wood-processing company.
