More and more large buildings are being built with timber as a renewable building material. Timbatec is a leading, innovative company in this growing future market.

    Public procurement law (BöB) has been revised and will enter into force at the beginning of 2021.

    Wood is a naturally renewable raw material that only requires solar energy and water for its production. Harvesting and processing take place with very little energy and the material also stores CO2. As a Swiss timber partner, Timbatec is committed to the use of this domestic raw material - also in public tenders.
