The history of Kronospan began in 1897 with a small family sawmill near Salzburg in the mountains of Austria. In the sixties of the last century, due to the constant introduction of innovations and the development of new materials, Kronospan became the market leader in Austria and Germany. At that time, the company already comprised several companies in these countries. The construction of the plant in England in 1970 marked the beginning of Kronospan’s investment activities around the world. Today, Kronospan is the biggest European company for the production of wood-based materials.
