The Wood & Energy group of companies has an international focus and comprises a number of production and administrative locations in Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg.

The site in Vielsalm is the largest in the group. It is here that regional softwoods are processed into sawn timber. The resulting sawmill by-products of sawdust and wood chips are used on site to produce wood pellets of the highest quality, providing about 50,000 of families with a sustainable source of heat.

The site also has a biomass co-generation plant that uses wood residues for which there is no alternative use to produce green electricity and heat. The part of the electricity generated that is not needed internally is fed into the public grid. The heat is used completely in our production processes, ensuring the plant's extremely high level of efficiency.

This site can be described as the cradle of the Wood&Energy Group, as it is our oldest site. Again, only softwoods are processed into sawn timber here.

Compared to the other sites, this sawmill can handle large trunk diameters and is therefore very flexible, enabling it to saw logs with diameters of between 100 and 900 mm. All sawmill by-products produced here are recycled internally.

In addition to a sawmill, our site in Cölbe/Schönstadt also operates a biomass cogeneration plant to generate electricity and heat to supply our timber drying chambers.

The surplus heat is used to supply around 85% of the households in the neighbouring villages with sustainably generated heat. In addition, Holz Schmidt manufactures solid structural timber (KVH®), a product that is subject to high quality standards and has become an indispensable material for applications in modern timber construction. The annual production capacity for further processing is around 150,000m³.
