What we cover with the broad term “by-products” is truly integrated and sustainable: we wish to complete the timber cycle in Erlenhof and master all the steps in the process chain. We are passionately committed to this goal.
The principle is simple and makes sense: sustainably harvested round wood from the surrounding forests is delivered to our wood processing plant. This timber is cut in the sawmill and further processed in the planing mill. The construction timber is either then sent directly to the customer or to our sister companies, Blumer-Lehmann Holzbau and BL Silobau, here in Erlenhof. Any residual timber from the individual process stages is either processed into pellets, chips or litter or converted into fuel for heat and energy in our very own wood-fired power station. We use the warmth produced to heat our plant and to dry the timber. Furthermore, we feed electricity for more than 1,200 households into the power grid.
