H. HEITZ Furnierkantenwerk GmbH & Co. KG
Edge and wrapping veneer for the furniture and construction industries
The HEITZ Group produces edge and wrapping veneer made of genuine wood for the furniture and construction industries. The company manufactures its products at its headquarters in Melle as well as at its plant in Pusztaszabolcs, Hungary, and also has a subsidiary in Heath, Ohio, USA. As the edge veneer market is an international market, HEITZ currently has an export share of about 70%. The broad customer base includes primarily manufacturers of furniture, trade and retail customers as well as enterprises from the wrapping, doors and windows industries. In past years, HEITZ benefitted significantly from two trends: the increasing streamlining of production processes in the furniture industry by outsourcing part of the value chain and customers’ growing demand for high-quality furniture also in the lower price segment. Today, HEITZ thus supplies, for example, edge veneer for the “BILLY” bookcase, one of the best-selling pieces of furniture around the world.
