Rail Gantry Solution with SENNEBOGEN 835 G for Blumer Lehmann’s Sawmill in Switzerland

Since winter 2023, a new rail gantry solution with a SENNEBOGEN 835 G has been in operation at the Swiss sawmill Blumer Lehmann in Gossau. As part of a comprehensive modernization of the plant, a portal crane of this dimension is being used for the first time in Switzerland at a sorting line. This demonstrates the company’s clear commitment to innovation and progress.

The modern family owned company with over 500 employees processes wood in all its facets: from timber industry (sawmill with further processing), timber construction, to silo and plant construction with locations in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. The headquarters at Erlenhof in Gossau combines tradition and innovation: in addition to constructing a new office complex, the modernization of the log yard is also underway. The goal is to increase production efficiency while focusing on sustainability and energy efficiency.



“In a project like this, all parties involved must be well coordinated to ensure that the conversion can be completed smoothly,” says Josua Preisig, production manager of the plant. He is particularly satisfied with the excellent cooperation with the manufacturer SENNEBOGEN and the Swiss sales partner, Kuhn Schweiz AG.
