Stable in value

Admonter manages its affairs in moderation. Since 1972

Durable grains, products with a long service life. Here at Admonter progression is the key.

Admonter came into being over four decades ago. One could make an argument for centuries rather than decades. The area surrounding Admont is well wooded, and timber has in fact been processed here since time immemorial. Since 1874 timber processing has been carried out here on an industrial basis. And Stift Admont Holzindustrie (abbreviated to STIA) has been operating here since 1972. Admonter is a commercial operation linked with the local Benedictine abbey. We produce natural wood floors, panels and staircases, and these products of ours have made quite a name for themselves. Admonter. This name is at the same time an acknowledgement of where we come from and a commitment. It guarantees that all our production is carried out on site here. This ensures the high quality of our products and also the wellbeing of the region. This keeps alive an understanding of craftsmanship that has grown from one generation to the next, and also develops it further. The long-term philosophy of the Benedictine community comes into play in two respects. In economic as well as ecological terms. Our customers have the certainty that comes with our PEFC certification: All the wood that we process originates from sustainably managed forests.

A site whose resistance to change is second to none

The Benedictine Admont Abbey has stood here for almost a thousand years now. And it was the Benedictines, too, who in 1972 founded the timber processing operation Stift Admont (Stia for short), which is the company behind the brand Admonter. To this day the Benedictines continue as owners of the company. Rock-solid management is a matter of course for the Benedictine community. This situation provides the maximum possible stability both for the people working here and for the products they make.
