[Translate to EN:] Bauwerk Traditionsunternehmen

Ernst Göhner laid the foundation for the renowned company more than 70 years ago. His pioneering spirit lives on in numerous Bauwerk innovations. The company᾿s innovative strength finds expression in regular new product developments as well as Bauwerk᾿s active support of the concept of innovation at Swiss universities.

Wood knowledge grown over decades

Our staff at Bauwerk have a passion for wood and its precise processing. Wood has dominated the company᾿s history since the beginning: In the early years, Ernst Göhner drew on his wood processing expertise to manufacture wooden bodyworks for the German car industry, earning himself a place in automobile history. In 1935, Bauwerk developed the patented mosaic parquet. Nine years later, production was moved to St. Margrethen. Over the following decades, the company developed into the leading Swiss parquet specialist.
