As a part of their long-term expansion and growth strategy, the binderholz Group will soon take over BSW Timber Ltd., one of the largest forestry and sawmill company in Great Britain. An agreement has on the acquisition of shares has already reached the office. Subject to the approval of the Austrian Federal Competition Authority and the British Financial Conduct Authority, the takeover is to be completed before the end of this year. The brand name BSW will be retained after integration into the binderholz Group and the current management will continue to lead the company.
