Formholz is a family business which goes back three generations and can therefore look back over a long-time tradition. Founded in 1950, the company strove ever upwards, going from strength to strenght until we were finally able to open a planing factory in 1991, a totally new sector for us. In 2006 we acquired an insolvent saw mill in Groß Gerungs, just a few kilometres from our headquarters, whereby it was possible, saving the jobs of the previous employees, as well as to outsource the complete sawing sector to this modern factory. At the original facility in Wiesensfeld, we are now able to completely focus on planing.
