One step ahead

Holzforschung Austria has been the only institute dealing with the entire value chain for more than 70 years – starting with wood storage in the forest via wood processing through to a wide variety of products. Related disciplines such as surface coatings, wood preservatives and adhesives are dealt with as well.

The research area is practice-oriented. The projects are carried out in close cooperation with small and large companies; we often work for our customers as their external research and development department. Our specialists cover a wide range of subjects; topics concerning several areas are dealt with in an interdisciplinary manner. HFA is also a member of the association of cooperative research institutes of the Austrian economy – Austrian Cooperative Research (ACR). In the area of conformity assessment (testing, inspection and certification), we are accredited by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research for all relevant procedures.
