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 for people 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
EVERY IDEA NEEDS THE RIGHT PLACE TO GROW.
Finding the right location requires a forward-thinking spirit.
Over the past100 years, the company that was set up as a sawmill in 1920 has matured and developed into a global company. From that time until today, the history of our company has been a very eventful one and one that has been marked by continuous growth and a great many successful ideas.
Today about 250 employees, mainly from the region, are the specialists for precision and quality behind a well-engineered machine park in one of the most modern prefabricated parquet factories in Europe.
ACTIVE WITH WOOD FROM A VERY EARLY AGE
As Karl Scheucher himself recalls, “I was always milling about in the workshop,even as a small boy – I grew up with the aroma of wood in my nostrils and fell in love with wood from a very early age.” In the 1970s and 1980s, the company continued its expansion under the leadership of Karl Scheucher senior, and in 1985, under the leadership of Karl Scheucher himself, commenced the production of solid wood panels. The production of multi-layered parquet flooring then followed from 1996 onwards.
And green power - for our parquet production.
At the beginning of November 2018 , the photovoltaic system on our premises went into operation with about 17000 solar panels on a roof area of 30000 m² - that‘s the size of five soccer fields - and currently the largest photovoltaic roof system in Austria.
The plant has an output of 5000 KWp - this capacity can supply around 1200 average households. One part of the electricity is used for our parquet production, the rest is fed into the public grid.
With our photovoltaic system we are able to avoid about 4 million kgs of CO2-emissions per year.
In addition, Scheucher will set up charging stations for its own vehicles as well as for employees and visitors. In the future we hope for a stronger e-mobility to be able to change our company fleet to „fully electric“.
The entire company area in Mettersdorf as well as the hot water presses are heated with waste wood (wood chips). The remainder is pressed into high-quality wood briquettes or selled to private and public heating systems.
Discover the real time production data of our system, the total avoided CO2 emissions or the equivalent amount of trees. We're very happy and proud about the sustainable, environmental and social benefits we provide using our in-house photovotaic system!
+ 17.000 Solar panels
+ on a roof top area of 30000 m² - that's equivalent to five soccer fields
+ Output 5000 KWp - this is enough to supply approx. 1200 households with environmentally friendly electricity
Your floor is one of the largest furnishing areas in your home! By choosing a real wood floor for your home, you can also save 6-8 kg of CO2 per square meter installed (compared to other floor coverings) and additionally support a healthy indoor climate for you and your family.
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.
High-quality parquet flooring 100% made in Austria
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!”
Over the past decades Scheucher has evolved into one of the leading parquet manufacturers, running one of the most modern parquet factories in Europe and stands for:
+ Premium workmanship
+ Highest Quality - made for generations
..not just only because we have one of the most modern parquet factories and machineries within Europe but also thanks to our dependable and highly conscientious staff, who put their very hearts into their work.
+ Contemporary design
By working with interior designers, designers and the furniture industry, our range is constantly adapted to the latest trends, but also leaves a broad scope for some timeless classics.
+ Unique innovations
Thanks to our own research and development department, we are able to quickly react to as well as set new trends, e.g. we had the world’s first answer to the problem of the tediously installation of Chevron flooring and managed to combine its elegant look with the advantages of the most recent product- and installation-technologies.
+ A full range of options and innovative construction types
Enjoy the wide range of wood types, natural colors, surface structures and finishes, dimensions and installations patterns. Different and innovative construction types of our various parquet collections are optimally tailored to the requirements of modern construction processes.

GOOD EMPLOYEES ENABLE US TO GROW.

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.
100 years of tradtion.
4 generations of passion.
