SWISS KRONO AG
A COMPANY OF THE SWISS KRONO GROUP
SWISS KRONO AG is a member of the Swiss Krono Group. The Group is organised under the control of Holding AG. It remains to this day completely family owned, and is a major player in the manufacturing and finishing of wood based products.
SWISS KRONO AG, like the other factories within the Swiss Krono Group, is run as an independent profit center. Today’s manufacturing plant was established in 1966, is located in Menznau, in the idyllic and un-spoilt rural Canton of Lucerne. Wood products are produced with the usual Swiss procession and quality, and are sold worldwide.
CONSERVE RESOURCES AND MAXIMISE CO2 REDUCTION
SWISS KRONO AG focuses on resource efficiency and sustainable energy supply. “An ingenious concept” is right, the material and energy flow from one to another. This reduces CO2 emissions and improves the overall value of wood in all aspects.
As a wood processing company, we completely agree with the Cascade strategy, the Timber circle. The products are made from virgin wood; the required energy is produced from recycled wood, after it has gone through its many possible life times, and replaces the use of fossil energy.
NATURE IS IN OUR HEART
Ecology is our default setting, it effects all of our decisions. All projects involving development of our infrastructure, or logistics are planed around our desire to establish long term relations with the local authorities, environmental organisations and our neighbors.
With the certification of our environmental management system (ISO14001), we have introduced a tool to optimise our resource use continuously. All raw materials are recycled as much as possible. Only after comprehensive recycling, are the products finally burnt to create energy. Every aspect of SWISS KRONO AG follows nature’s natural cycle.
