Wood is our passion – for 90 years!

When Wilhelm Ludwig came after his graduation to Hamburg to begin middle of March 1920 an apprenticeship as a wooden businessman, nobody anticipated that this should become the prelude to decades of successful history. On the 5th of September, 1922 Wilhelm Ludwig acquired his trading licence as an independent businessman and founded on the 1st of October, 1922 the company W. Ludwig & Co. He led the enterprise successfully through the inflation of the 20s, the „black Friday" on the stock exchanges in 1929 and the economic crisis.

Today is Ludwig & Co. as a family enterprise in the third generation your experienced and internationally networked partner all around the wood!
