IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE IDEA.
An idea grows like a seed, striking roots and growing into a mature tree.
For many years now, Scheucher, a family-run company with a long tradition and its headquarters in heavily-forested Styria in Austria, has been producing elegant parquet flooring that meets with a superb reception in more than 45 countries throughout the world.
I have been active as a leading figure within the company for more than thirty years now and with my team and my dependable partners am in a position to look back at the success it has achieved. At the same time, it is also clear that a very promising and auspicious future lies ahead.
Allow yourself to be won over by a complete range of wood types, grades and finishes and feel the love and perfection embodied in each parquet floor from Scheucher!
KR Ing. Karl Scheucher
INSPIRED BY THE FOREST
In the forest, nothing at all happens without a reason – a perfect eco-system, in which every animal and every plant has its place. In that way, the forest is capable of adapting to any changes in conditions. As a company, Scheucher aims to emulate the forest in this regard and sets out to secure the future of its business for generations to come.
MADE IN AUSTRIA & STYRIA
The most important part of the company’s sustainable approach is the fact that its production site is located in Austria, in Zehensdorf near Mettersdorf, in the federal province of Styria to be precise. As Karl Scheucher himself confirms, “Just like a tree seed remains anchored to its original location once it has established its roots, Scheucher has remained rooted in its original locality!”
With one of the most modern parquet factories in Europe, Scheucher has evolved into one of the leading parquet manufacturers in Austria over the past decades.
SCHEUCHER stands for:
+ Premium workmanship
+ Contemporary design
+ Unique innovations
+ An outstanding technical know-how
+ Professional service and consulting

GOOD EMPLOYEES ENABLE US TO GROW.
To us, they mean the same thing that soil, water an light mean to trees – LIFE!
FROM CREATION …
We actually give our parquet designers a great deal of creative freedom. That way, they never cease to delight us by producing extremely stylish, trendy or even extravagant models, or even entire production lines.What is more, Scheucher’s own R&D departmenthas itself been responsible for a great many innovations from a technologicalpoint of view.
… AND PRODUCTION …
None of this would be possible without dependable and highly conscientious production staff, who put their very hearts into their work. What use is the best product design, if it isn’t 100% perfect and doesn’t have the backing of a workforce that is passionate? In order to ensure quality of production, our company makes use of state-of-the-art machinery on a company site that provides Scheucher with scope to expand and to respond to and develop all of its business requirements.
… TO MANAGEMENT.
No ship can successfully sail the seven seas without the experience, training and the longterm vision of the captain and his officers. With this in mind, Scheucher has been managed by an experienced leadership team since it first got underway and has ably and successfully negotiated all of the hidden obstacles and cliffs that it encountered on the ever-changing waters of the global commercial environment.
