Wood industry is a popular employer in Central Switzerland

The fact that wood as a resource is of vital importance in Central Switzerland, that the Central Swiss timber industry with its 16,000 employees is very strongly networked and generates around 4.5 % of the total value added in Central Switzerland is shown in a sector mirror prepared by the Institute for Business and Regional Economics IBR. It was commissioned by Lignum Holzwirtschaft Zentralschweiz, an association that strengthens the competitiveness of the entire forest and timber industry in Central Switzerland.
