On 23 May 2017, the Chamber of Commerce of Upper Austria gave us an award as a company with a long-standing tradition. The trophy was presented by Josef Renner, the regional director in Vöcklabruck.

The award is given to companies with a history dating back more than 100 years. FN Neuhofer Holz was formed in 1650 as a sawmill and has been at the Zell am Moos location for 368 years.

The company is entirely family owned and is currently managed by the 10th generation, with the 11th already playing a role in the company.

In addition to the wonderful trophy and the certificate, we were also presented with a tradition book. We are extremely pleased that our family-owned company is listed in it.
