• Screws
    Safe and Secure
    HECO-Schrauben is a byword for safety and reliability in fastening technology across the globe. While it is a badge HECO wears with pride, it brings responsibilities with it. HECO screws are subject to the most stringent quality testing before they are sent out in the world to forge permanent connections. HECO's view of quality is matched by their stance on environmental protection.

    Herrmann's Timber-Frames Homes is the exclusive importer and distributer of HECO products in North America.

Herrmann's Timber-Frame Homes was founded in 2002 by Andreas Herrmann. Andreas has been passionately building high quality timber framed homes since 1977, when he began his full timber framer apprenticeship in central Switzerland. After completing this intensive three year program, he continued to further his education in the design and construction of timber frames to become a foreman of a full framing team. After leading this team for 18 years and being involved in the raising of 1500 timber framed homes, Andreas' experience and expertise inspired him to start his own company, Herrmann's Timber-Frame Homes.

With the Switzerland housing market in decline, Andreas decided to bring the tradition of European timber framing to Canada where he and his son, who had already started his own apprenticeship in timber framing, could build a successful timber framing business. Andreas and his family first built their own timber framed home and manufacturing facility to showcase their quality workmanship. The Herrmann family began having great success in building quality timber framed homes in Eastern Ontario just two years after arriving in Canada. Then, for a full decade, this family operated business has been building some of the finest homes, as well as distributing products with the support of suppliers from across Canada and Europe.

Today, Herrmann's Timber-Frame Homes' main focus is on importing and distributing quality European building products for the high-end housing industry. They are proud to represent various manufacturing companies out of Austria, Germany and Switzerland with products ranging from wood fasteners and connectors, over windows and doors, to ecological insulation and building envelope enclosure systems.

In cooperation with a PhD student from the UBC (University of British Columbia), technical advisors from various companies, and Andreas' team's experience in the Canadian and European building sector, consulting builders and individual home owners has turned into their professional passion.
