Forestry and timber – an important sector of the economy

Around 1.1 million people in total are employed in Germany’s forestry and wood industry. The downstream forestry sector includes wood­working, the wood processing industry (e.g. the furniture industry), the wood machining industry (sawmills, wood materials industry), the paper industry, the publishing and printing sector, and the use of wood for energy.

Timber merchants and suppliers are also part of the forestry and wood products sector. With this in mind, there are more people working in the wood sector than the automobile industry, for example, or in mechanical and plant engineering! When it comes to wood, we at Friedrich Bansmann OHG are your personal point of contact in Bielefeld.
