Danzer grew sales throughout the year 2014 by 5% to €232m (from €221m in 2013 and €211m in 2012) and was re-associated with FSC in August 25, 2014 – too late to have a tangible impact on the company’s economic performance in 2014.

A main source for the above average growth has been, said the company, successful new products and technologies, like scanned logs for optimized procurement, thick cut sliced surface layers for the parquet industry and crosscut 3D-Veneer inner layers for 3D-Plywood shells.

Over the last three years, Danzer invested approximately €20m in new technologies, equipment and products. In 2014, Danzer created 187 new jobs, 63 of which in Africa, and sold its products to 80 different countries.
