STEICO - The group for green building products
The leader in wood fibre insulation products
The STEICO success story began in 1986 with the founding of Steinmann & Co. GmbH. From its humble beginnings as a small timber importer, STEICO has evolved over the years, developing into the leading manufacturer of wood fibre insulation materials.
