When Walter Kerwer founded HOLZKRAUS GmbH together with his wife Brigitte in 1988, they were driven by their shared passion: their love for wood. This wonderful material and the infinite possibilities impelled the founders of the company.

25 years later, the regional timber trade has developed into a well-known supra-regional importer and trader of timber of all kinds.

We are partners and suppliers for joineries, window manufacturers and carpenters. And even more: far beyond the borders we  supply the timber wholesale and the industry.

Today we employ more than 30 regular members of staff as well as freelancers. Birgit Kerwer is managing the company in the 2nd generation.
