History. A proud tradition.

The history of the SWISS KRONO GROUP began in Switzerland in the 1960s. In 1966, the Austrian entrepreneur Ernst Kaindl founded his company in Menznau. It has constantly grown since then and continually expanded its range of products. Regular investments enabled further locations across Europe and around the globe to be established.

Thanks to the relentless determination of the owners and employees, the SWISS KRONO GROUP has become one of the world’s leading companies in the wood products industry. Dynamic growth allowed the international group to enter new markets. Today, customers in more than 121 countries benefit from the company’s high-quality products.

The SWISS KRONO GROUP currently employs around 4,800 staff. Thanks to their commitment and professionalism, Swiss Krono’s products and services are famous throughout the world for their exceptional quality and lasting reliability.
