Häring – a family company

The Häring Group has been a family-owned business and a leader in innovative construction systems for 140 years. Wood, a locally sourced raw material that does not require energy for its production, has always been at the heart of the company’s activities. This paves the way for high-performance construction systems and supporting structures that meet the most stringent requirements in terms of functionality and architectural design. The Häring Group has its finger on the pulse and satisfies the current demand for resource-efficient, systematic construction with sustainable raw materials.

Häring’s international operations combine adding value locally with environmental concerns, based on mutual respect among all partners. 

International Operations

 In Asia, as elsewhere, wood offers unimagined possibilities on this dynamic market. There is a growing awareness that locally based processing and production brings the greatest benefits. This insight led Häring to launch Haring Swiss Wood Structures (Tianjin) Ltd. in China for the manufacture of glulam supporting structures. We are committed to helping the highly versatile, eco-friendly material wood break into this market.

Swiss know-how and quality can also benefit other cultures. Häring’s international operations focus on long-term prospects. As well as investing in production facilities for high-quality timber products, this also includes providing support for training and ensuring a comprehensive transfer of expertise and experience from Switzerland.

Mehrzweckhalle Paro, Bhutan

Technology transfer to Bhutan

It all started with a fact-finding trip by the Bhutan Forestry Authority (BFA) to Switzerland in 2012. One of the delegation’s ports of call was the Häring Group member Roth Burgdorf AG. This was followed by a return visit to Bhutan. Impressed by the architectural potential in cutting-edge timber engineering, the BFA sought to order a pilot construction from Switzerland to provide an attractive multi-purpose hall for its new Royal Academy. Instead, Häring suggested employing locals to construct the hall from native wood – true to the Group’s sustainability ideal.
