our history

  • 1820

    Joseph Troger acquires an estate, consisting of agriculture, a “Lohnmühle” (which is a kind of gate where you pay toll), a lime kiln and a fence, which is initially used for personal use only, near the Vomperbach, a Tyrolean stream. Due to the increasing interest in timber in the region, Troger decides to build a waterwheel-driven sawmill.
  • 1964

    During the war and post-war period, other economic sectors increasingly recede into the background and Walter Troger (5th generation) and his wife Gerda focus on the sawmill.

    Eventually, 3,600 fm per year are already being cut with the sawmill, which is basically still original but has been electrified in the meantime.

    This aerial photograph dates back to the early years of the 20th century. During renovatiosns, a jost that was dated back to 1692 was found, which proves how long this property has existed.

  • 1967

    Investment in a log yard. A complete novelty at that time.

  • until 1969

    A little later, a new sawmill with a cutting capacity of 26,000 fm per year is built. This completes the change to a powerful sawmill specialising in timber trade.

  • 1973

    Troger performs pioneering work by producing three-layer boards and, thus, pursue the path to processing.
  • 1984

    The high demand for raw material for processing can no longer be met with the existing sawmill.

    For this reason, another sawmill is being invested in the ground-breaking profiling technology.

  • 1985

    Only one year later, the company suffers a setback: the old sawmill burns down completely.

    But passion is greater than suffering. So Walter and Gerda decide to re-equip the only newly built factory to cover larger dimensions there as well in order to handle the entire production on just one sawmill.

  • 1986

    Land is a scarce commodity in the Inntal, the valley around the Inn river in Tyrol. For this reason, the log yard was moved to the neighbouring village called Stans to expand the area.
  • 1996

    The high demand for plywood increases gradually, and Troger is, thus, further expanding its market-leading role with the construction of a new factory.

    Meanwhile, the sawmill cuts approximately 150,000 fm per year.

  • 2008

    In the meantime, the company is lead by their son Helmut Troger. The largest investment in the company's history is made: a fundamental overhaul of the sawmill, a completely new sorting plant, several drying chambers, the expansion of the warehouse and a new “Biomasse-Heizkraftwerk”, which is a power station burning biomass.
  • Family Troger

    Today we are happy to be have been able to indulge our passion for wood every day since 1820. Our history has taught us to always act prudently and with foresight in the interest of the community in the family business and to follow the right paths in the long term.

Quality...

… is noticeable enthusiasm for wood. The fascination of wood in harmony with high quality standards is something we are passionately committed to. The company's success is the result of our promise of quality, which our customers as well as our employees are aware of.
