About Holz-Wastl

Company and philosophy


From family business to global corporation

It is due to pure coincidence in 1984 - a conversation with an acquaintance - that Holz Wastl entered the automotive industry. 

Driven by the necessity to acquire an additional supplier for shelving boards, Holz-Wastl was very promptly incorporated into the supplier portfolio of a 1st tier, which is still located in Austria.

This was convenient for Holz-Wastl, as the core business with timber trade had stagnated following the opening of the East.

Back then, as is the case today, solid and high-quality work was absolutely in focus. Thus, following an initial shelving board, another order came through, and the entry into the automotive supplier business was established.


The portfolio was expanded and soon included the complete production of complex components and panels. Various laminated components such as parcel shelves, covers from our own PU production and from 2020 even columns from the back injection process that was also installed were added.

The production site "Autoteile Wastl Fennes" - AWF for short - in Sopron grew to four production halls, and a new plant in Sarvar was added in 2012.

The passion for exclusive cars and their equipment, which the founders, Hans-Peter Fennes and Herbert Wastl-Fennes, had from an early age, grew steadily, as did the company. Parts from the Holz-Wastl production facilities are installed in numerous vehicles in the high-end category.

In 2021, the management was handed over to the next generation, Ulrike and Philip. Along with the business responsibilities, they also passed on their love for beautiful cars to them.
