From One-Man-Show to Global Player

STEICO Milestones

Founded in 1986 as a timber trading company "Gesellschaft für Bau- und Industriebedarf Steinmann & Co GmbH", STEICO is today the world market leader for ecological wood fibre insulation materials, uniquely complemented by its integrated timber construction system. STEICO’s dynamic growth to become a leading market player with around 1,900 employees is due to its customers and employees.

A key factor for us is that we are and remain a reliable partner for craftsmen and building owners. That is why we seek a close exchange with retailers and processors. We already offer a comprehensive and coordinated product range, which we are developing with a view to the future to meet tomorrow’s needs.  As a team, we do everything we can to convince every customer of STEICO’s quality when it comes to our products, service and ease of use.
