Our company

We process the domestic softwoods spruce, fir, pine, Douglas fir and larch according to the individual wishes of our customers and ship the goods all over the world. Our products are used to create halls, houses, bridges and much more.


The Heinzelmann sawmill is located in the middle of the Black Forest, a wood-rich region with the best qualities. Your orders are manufactured individually according to your wishes on a highly flexible chipper and gang machine, profiled in our own planing plant or planed on all sides. With our decades of experience in the field of pressure impregnation, we are able to protect wood against all weather conditions. Two systems - one with a length of 16 meters and a diameter of 1.80 meters and a system with a length of 6 meters and a diameter of 2.80 meters - can optimally impregnate all types of wood. 

Drying takes place using a state-of-the-art wood chip heating system at low temperatures, in a way that conserves resources and is of excellent quality. 

Our Vision & Mission

Our company lives with and from the naturally renewable raw material wood, which we process in the best possible way for the benefit of our customers. The founders of our company already felt committed to the goal of “working in harmony with nature”. Four hydroelectric power plants and several photovoltaic systems, all of which generate clean and CO₂-free energy, play their part in generating energy that protects the climate and resources.

Our commitment to the climate and the environment was recognized in 2001 with the presentation of the German Solar Prize. Our entire systems are operated exclusively from renewable energy sources such as hydropower, photovoltaics and biomass. #In harmony with nature

Our company history

In 1855 the timber merchant and deer host Johannes Heinzelmann founded the company named after him.

The sawmill was given the name Gebrüder Heinzelmann when his sons Christoph and Christian took over responsibility for the company. A daughter of the Heinzelmann brothers married Georg Koch in the third generation. The company still runs this line, meanwhile in the fifth and sixth generation.
