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. Due to the necessity of needing a supplier for shelves, Holz Wastl was in at short notice the supplier portfolio of a 1st tier based in Austria then as now. That came in handy for Holz-Wastl, since that actual business with the timber trade after the opening of the East was no longer the same as before.
Then as now, solid and high-quality work was absolutely the focus.So the first shelf was followed by another order and the entry into the automotive supplier business was made.
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 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 takeover of Holz Wastl to their children Ulrike and Philip was prepared. Besides the business agendas, they have also passed on their love of beautiful cars to them.
For over 35 years Holz Wastl has been one of the absolute experts in the automotive supply industry.
