responsibility for man, environment, and economy

Your forestry company with tradition


In 1979 Walter Friedrich Lau founded his first company, which mainly operated in the construction of ropeway systems, and initially only filled the time with harvesting timber in the winter months. Eventually, he decided to focus his activities on harvesting timber, and the foundation for the success of today's forestry company was laid!

In 2006 Lau Forstservice GmbH was founded, which has ever since been growing, and employs about 200 staff today.  As a whole, the companies of Walter Lau employ over 300 staff in four different countries.

  • Founded in 1979 by Walter Friedrich Lau
