26.09.17 - HOLTEC receives the order for a new log sorting line at Holzwerke Weinzierl
In Vilshofen in Bavaria, Holzwerke Weinzierl runs one of the best performing softwood sawmills in Germany. At a area of more than 20 hectare, more than 700 000 solid cubic meters of logs are processed each year. Due to the company’s dynamic development during the last years, it was necessary to extend the log sorting and the storage areas accordingly and to adapt them to state-of-the-art technology. Junior manager Hans Weinzierl did not take the decision easily – it was the result of a long and very intense planning period. Eventually, HOLTEC asserted itself with its chain-less technology in the feeding and acceleration area, since the reduction of ongoing operating costs takes an ever higher priority. These arguments were already convincing in 2015, when the sawmill infeed had to be exchanged. “At that time, the Holtec technology has already convinced us in the sawmill – thus, it was a consistent step to prefer HOLTEC in the log sorting as well” states Hans Weinzierl, who is the managing director in Vilshofen since 2006.
HOLTEC is looking forward to another reference installation in Bavaria and is thankful for the confidence.
