1959 was a good year.
For a good idea.
A family barking up the right tree.
Our company has been owner-managed since it was founded by Erwin Berghammer in 1959. Since 2006, Georg Emprechtinger has been the sole owner. The son of a sawmill owner from the Innviertel, he has his roots in the region and has had a special relationship with wood his whole life.
Teamwork in management.
The managing directors of TEAM 7 are a very successful and conscientious team: the owner George Emprechtinger is responsible for marketing and commercial operations and Hermann Pretzl is responsible for production.
The entire supply chain for our solid wood furniture is under our roof. We have two furniture factories, plus our own board-making factory and a sawmill. Because we grow our own trees on 74 hectares of woodland, we understand the great value of wood and how important it is for sustainability. And in our TEAM 7 flagship stores, we learn all about what our customers want. With our roughly 650 employees, we produce everything ourselves – from the tree to the finished furniture.
Employers that can see the wood for the trees.
We are one of the largest employers in the region. The education and training of our employees is very important to us. We always look at people and their abilities as a whole and try to enhance skills and provide prospects and opportunities to get ahead. We also promote older employees and help to make work and family compatible.
Purchasing with the right attitude.
We set great store by regional purchasing structures. As a furniture manufacturer we are meticulous about ensuring that our suppliers share our company's values. As well as keeping journeys short, which reduces pollutant and CO2 emissions, the flexibility of a regional network of suppliers is an important component of the operational efficiency of TEAM 7. It also has a positive impact on the creation and retention of high-quality jobs in the region.
