Malchow site

The second Pollmeier sawmill went into operation in 2000 in the town of Malchow, but was closed in 2010 due to a lack of log timber and poor demand for hardwood. In 2016, the market had recovered and the sawmill was put back into production.

"We have always had a highly motivated and qualified workforce in Malchow, who will, for the most part, still be present with the re-opening. Now that the timber market has recovered, and after initial exploratory talks with forest owners in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania have led me to expect a corresponding wood supply, what would be more fitting than to re-open the plant?"

Quote from Ralf Pollmeier.


"This is a good decision for the timber and forestry industry in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, as well as for the region around Malchow. After all, resuming work in the sawmill will increase the demand for timber from our state while also creating around 70 jobs in a sparsely populated region".

Quote from Forestry Minister Dr Till Backhaus.

The Pollmeier sawmills

In Creuzburg and Aschaffenburg, Pollmeier is running the hardwood sawmills with the highest overall capacity in Europe. At every location, the most modern state-of-the-art technology is efficiently used. In fact, Pollmeier was the first hardwood manufacturer to introduce in its sawmills trend-setting ideas already successfully proven in the automobile industry. With a very respectable result to say the least: a standardized, fully automatic mass production with highest quality standards.
