“Iisveden makes a significant contribution to the beautiful wooden buildings in Switzerland.”

Gebr. Eisenring AG is a Swiss planing mill with a history of over 140 years. As a committed partner, we face the varied wishes of architects and builders every day. Everything has to match the refined Swiss taste and standards.

Thanks to our flexible machinery, we can respond to these requests and always work out the best solutions. A successfull project is a complex mosaic, where the finishing, e.g. the surface treatment, is an important piece.

The most important starting point is always the raw material. We are therefore dependent on reliable suppliers who can deliver raw material in the desired lengths to match the high Swiss quality standards. With its top quality, Iisveden makes a significant contribution to the beautiful wooden buildings in Switzerland. Besten Dank!

“When I kick them a bit, they always deliver.”

The finest craftsmanship in Finland resides on the western coast, in the Ostrobothnia region. The fine people of Ostrobothnia take pride in their work and strive for premium quality in everything they do.

So when you want to buy a house with that little bit of extra and you want it to last for generations, where else to go than to Terjärv, Ostrobothnia. There you will find the exclusive housemaker Teri-Talot, and their partner Granholm & Saarinen, who since 1995 have been meticulously preparing all the wooden components that go into the original Teri homes.

Since well over 20 years, the outside cladding and other visually critical parts of the Teri houses have been created from the finest spruce of Savo region, carefully graded to suit the exclusive requirements of Teri. Iisveden was one of the few sawmills able to produce the exact grade and visual appearance required, and hence the cooperation between the companies has been ongoing throughout this millennium.

As Kim Hässjöbacka, the owner of Granholm & Saarinen, often points out: “Iisveden wants to pretend that we ask for tough things with a short notice, but when I kick them a bit, they always deliver.”

Our geographical location is the main reason for the exceptional quality of our spruce: we are located right in the middle of Scandinavia’s finest spruce region. And from Iisvesi our products are shipped daily to our export customers in Europe and Asia.
