With the new TEAM 7 Welt – the largest investment in the company’s history – our vision is becoming a reality. The combination of ultramodern technology and genuine craftsmanship creates a place of inspiration and innovation for natural living at the highest level.
TEAM 7 WELT: Ground-breaking ceremony.
Together with Upper Austrian council member Markus Achleitner, the mayor of Ried, Albert Ortig, along with representatives from WIEHAG Timber Construction, the construction company Bau Mayr GmbH and the architecture firm Matulik, George Emprechtinger, CEO and owner, and Joint Managing Director Hermann Pretzl, welcomed guests on 6 July 2021 to the opening ceremony of construction of the new TEAM 7 Welt.
The eco-friendly building with low-tech features and green roof will live up to the highest possible design aspirations. The interior includes open-space work areas and communication zones, a multifunction conference room, a show kitchen which will be available for hire, and a “skybar”, with a fabulous view across Ried. In addition, a 1200 m² TEAM 7 Store will offer plenty of space for inspiration. In the restaurant run by David Gattringer and partners, both employees and visitors will be treated to a specially created range of menu options.
“A vision becomes reality”, declared Georg Emprechtinger with delight – and could not resist taking a lap of honour on the digger. “We are excited to be taking this pioneering step into the future today,” says Hermann Pretzl, underlining the significance of the project. “As you can see, at TEAM 7 ecology and economy always go hand in hand.”
It’s an appealing concept: we have enjoyed steady growth for over 20 years now. With our commitment to Austrian craftsmanship and our capacity for innovative approaches to sustainability, design and technology, we have more than tripled our sales in the last two decades, and we even managed to achieve seven per cent growth during the challenging coronavirus year 2020.
Pure solid wood from TEAM 7’s own forest, large glass surfaces, green roofs and courtyards, trees as filters and the element of water are all combined to create a sense of well-being in the workplace. An organic restaurant with a garden, an event room, a show kitchen and a rooftop sky bar all add to the splendour of the new company headquarters in Ried. Part of the new TEAM 7 WELT is also a two-storey TEAM 7 store. In an area of around 1,200 m², you can experience our solid wood furniture in a completely new dimension. You will be able to feel and experience our passion for genuine craftsmanship and pure solid wood combined with contemporary design and innovative technology.
Both in Austria and abroad, TEAM 7 is thus courageously and consistently paving its unique ecological path into the future.
