A piece of wood: from Carinthia to Vienna in just a few days

The first piece of wood left our factory in Steinfeld on Sunday. But this time not by truck. No, we cycled it to the Tauernschleuse (Tauern Motorail)! The planning company UBM Development came up with something special for a good cause to help start construction. The idea was that the first piece of timber shouldn’t be delivered in the usual way, but transported to Vienna sustainably, through the athletic commitment of many people. After the starting gun sounded in our Steinfeld factory, Hannes Theurl cycled 45 kilometres to Mallnitz train station with full commitment, manpower and, thankfully, fantastic weather. At that point, the timber was then handed over and its journey continued with either a runner, cyclist or paddler, until it arrived finally in Vienna on Tuesday.
