As a leading timber construction company, Blumer Lehmann harnesses the potential of timber in all its facets and works to advance timber engineering internationally.

The complete timber life cycle
A fascination with wood has defined how we think and act as a business since 1875. Blumer Lehmann processes the natural raw material that is timber into innovative products, services and structures in a complete cycle of sustainable value creation. Each year in our sawing, planing and finger-jointing facilities, we turn 170,000 m³ of Swiss logs into an extensive range of sawn timber products for the construction industry.
The residual timber is processed into animal litter and carbon-neutral pellets and used as an energy source for our own power plant. Using timber construction methods, Blumer Lehmann develops, plans, produces and delivers new builds – including Free Form projects in collaboration with world-renowned architectural practices – as well as conversions with additional storeys and renovations. Furthermore, the company develops and manufactures modular timber structures that make affordable residential space and maximum flexibility possible, even when space is limited. Blumer Lehmann also specialises in silos and facilities for road and winter maintenance across Europe – automated and equipped with modern conveyor technology.
