Vecoplan and Löhr door manufacturing VHZ 800 shredder

Master carpenter Markus Löhr has evolved his family business from a traditional carpentry workshop into a specialised door manufacturing facility. Customers benefit from receiving high-quality, unique pieces crafted from historical wood. The residual wood from production is repurposed for heat generation. For the necessary shredding, Löhr has depended on a reliable Vecoplan shredder for 30 years. Recently, Vecoplan upgraded the aging system with a new VHZ 800, complete with a feed hopper.

“Every door we make is absolutely unique”, says Markus Löhr. The master carpenter’s family business in Höchstenbach in the Westerwald is now almost 160 years old and in its fifth generation. The company meanwhile employs 15 people, five of whom are master carpenters.

“We manufacture customised solid wood doors. They can be modern if desired, but our focus is on historical doors,” he explains. His father still offered the classic range, including windows, stairs, front and interior doors. However, the competition from larger companies was strong. When Markus Löhr took over the business in 2004, he transformed the carpentry workshop into a door manufacturing facility – not only returning to “real” carpentry, but also finding a market niche in which he has been extremely successful for years.

“Our annual turnover is around one million euros,” says Löhr. Customers come from all over Germany and neighbouring countries like Switzerland, Luxembourg, and France. The master carpenter even had a door delivered to Denmark recently.

Vecoplan AG is a producer and supplier of machines and systems for processing and handling primary and secondary raw materials for material and thermal recycling. These include wood, biomass, plastics, paper, other materials, and household and commercial waste. The company lays the foundation for functioning recycling thanks to its extensive portfolio. Vecoplan supports its customers as a partner for single-machine orders, complex plants, and mega projects.
