Commissioning of the photovoltaic system
Assembly and commissioning of the in-house photovoltaic system. The panels have a total area of 820 m². At full operation and on sunny days the photovoltaic system generates 100 KW of electricity per hour and thus supplies more than 30% of the electricity requirement. Electricity surpluses (e.g. on weekends) are fed into the public grid.
In 2015, Sun Wood continued on a course of rapid growth, developing into a large world-wide network of 24 dealers, necessitating a production expansion of an additional 700 square meters.

Start of the Antique Wood Production
In 2010, Arno Stainer (born in 1968) began with first antique wood panels. The idea for the antique wood panels resulted from a conversation with a woodworker, who suggested finding a better way to produce antique wood panels since they were getting ever more rare and expensive. Once the first panel was produced, an entire collection followed, along with the brand name “Sun Wood” and in 2011, the first patent claims for the production process.
Company expansion of another 1500 m²
2002 saw the expansion of an additional facility in St. Martin, with the purchase of property totalling 1.500 m², as well as the purcahse of the first digital printing facility in Austria for rigid materials, and the largest and most modern screenprinting capability in the world of 8 x 4 meters.
