Values & Principles


Perceiving innovation as a challenge

Economic and efficient construction is the order of the day in modern timber construction. Efficient connection technology is indispensable in expanding the use of timber and hence timber construction. Screws, bonding agents and innovative connection technologies will acquire greater significance as the future unfolds.

Excellence delivers trust!

A qualified carpenter, Vinzenz Harrer worked for many years as a polisher and construction manager. Founding Vinzenz Harrer GmbH in 1994, he developed the company from a traditional timber construction firm to become a trade enterprise – the "leading specialist for solutions in timber construction". Among others, the company focuses on near-natural and sustainable construction products for energy-optimised building, and now operates in many areas of timber and prefab construction. Our sales channels in over 30 countries have helped establish outstanding expertise in a variety of building standards.

The road to success

The SHERPA connectors deliver a high degree of standardisation, helping to introduce automatic procedures as quickly as possible to the practical field in planning and processing. Nevertheless, the system finds repeated use in individual solutions. This is only possible based on suitable planning documents. The new SHERPA Manual, its extensive technical data and explanations, also the calculation examples, is intended to provide for precisely this need.

In its design, a clear and conscious focus was placed on practical topics, including connections between wood and steel or reinforced concrete.
