BUILDING MATERIALS Business Segment
Innovative Products. Top Quality. In over 20 Countries.
Baumit Straße 1, 9020 Klagenfurt, Austria
All Wietersdorfer building material activities are concentrated in one company: w&p Baustoffe GmbH. In addition to Austria, our market comprises large parts of the continent with the main focus on east, southeastern and northeastern Europe. Today we are present in more than 20 countries with our Baumit and KEMA brands.
The Baumit-Success Story
The rise of our building material products started when we developed ThermoPutz, the first insulating render. They continued to go from strength to strength as we began our Baumit brand partnership in Austria in 1988 and took over KEMA in 2007. In 1994, we expanded into neighboring countries and formed our first foreign Baumit subsidiary in Slovenia. Branches in various locations then followed, including Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Italy, Greece, Russia, the Baltic States, and the UK.
Innovative Products for Home Construction and Renovation
Baumit has always been a pioneer for innovations. Several developments such as Baumit Open – KlimaFassade, Baumit KlebeAnker and Baumit KlimaPutze revolutionized the building materials market and made construction easier, and homes better to live in, for our customers. KEMA has turned us into one of the leading companies in Europe in the field of tile adhesives and industrial flooring. Today we supply a full range of building products for home construction across Europe. This includes renders, plasters, mortars, adhesives, fillers, screeds, interior paints, thermal insulation composite systems, tiling and flooring systems.
We Drive the Building Materials Market
What we stand for is people, innovation, high quality, good marketing, and healthy growth. Our goal is to consolidate our position in the existing markets over the coming years and to expand into new markets outside Europe. We aim to continue to make our customers’ day-to-day work easier in various ways with innovative, healthy, and energy-efficient building material products.
Baumit is the most emotional brand of high quality building materials in Europe. It stems from unique cooperation between two Austrian family businesses with the most strategically important resources of cement, lime, and sand in their hands.
