Timbeco - export stars of the Estonian timber industry

The history of Estonian timber house builder Timbeco goes back several decades to a modest family operation at the dawn of capitalism in the early 90s, building wooden log houses under the name Palktare for affluent Scandinavian and German buyers. 2006 became a turning point in the company’s development, as demand for wooden buildings went into decline in Scandinavian markets, due to more stringent energy efficiency requirements.

However, the markets needed affordable yet elegant pre-cut buildings that could be assembled on-site using post-and-beam construction methods. The first element buildings were assembled in 2007 and soon Timbeco moved on to hybrid constructions – wooden facades and roofing for steel-and-concrete buildings, a business area in which there was little competition in Estonia.
