MERK Timber and Stephan Holzbau now named ZÜBLIN Timber
Stuttgart, 26 June 2017
The long and successful cooperation in timber construction between MERK Timber, Stephan Holzbau and ZÜBLIN is now also reflected in the official company names of the two ZÜBLIN subsidiaries. Effective immediately, MERK Timber GmbH of Aichach has been renamed ZÜBLIN Timber Aichach GmbH, Stephan Holzbau GmbH of Gaildorf will be doing business as ZÜBLIN Timber Gaildorf GmbH. The renaming formally seals the uniform identity of the three companies as part of the ZÜBLIN Timber brand.
“Our clients have known us as ZÜBLIN Timber for years and appreciate the timber construction expertise of MERK, STEPHAN and ZÜBLIN that is united under this brand. It is only logical to also use the brand names in the official business transactions,” explains managing director Christoph Zimmermann.
For the two companies’ clients and the roughly 300 employees at the four locations in Aichach, Gaildorf, Leutkirch and Bozen, nothing will change. The range of services, the organisational structure and the contact persons remain the same. Gaildorf will continue to be the main production site for glued laminated timber (glulam), while Aichach is focused on the production of cross laminated timber (LENO). Together with ZÜBLIN’s expertise in turnkey construction, ZÜBLIN Timber continues to offer all services from the development, production and delivery of high-performance building systems to the realisation of turnkey timber construction projects. Current ZÜBLIN Timber projects include the turnkey construction of an office and laboratory building for Jowat in Detmold, Germany, as well as the construction of Maggie´s Cancer Centre in Oldham, England.
