Our 9 Favorite German Precast Companies - Blue Future Partners (2023)

Germany is a world leader in prefabricated housing, with more than 20% of all existing housing coming from factories. That number will continue to grow, as the prefab housing industry is expected to outpace the overall housing market by 3.2 percent annually over the next five years.

It is therefore no surprise that Germany has a long list of very successful precast companies. Many of today's market leaders are more than 100 years old, starting as small lumber mills or sawmills and growing into prefab housing companies during the post-war housing boom. Today, they build homes to the highest environmental standards, indistinguishable from 'normal' homes, and are often delivered in just a few weeks.

Here are our picks for our favorite German precast panel companies:

1.Wesfetty House

Founded in 1881, this family-owned precast business is the oldest on our list. Fertighaus Weiss is a typical German "small and medium-sized enterprise" and builds around 240 architect-designed houses every year. Customers can choose from different categories such as bungalow, log cabin or Bauhaus style, with around 15 models in each category. Every home can be equipped with the latest smart home technology, such as simulating someone's presence by randomly closing the curtains. Fertighaus Weiss can upgrade all homes with sustainable features such as solar panels, exterior insulation or glass, and even run a carbon-positive factory.

3.life shop

Living Haus, the sister company of Bien Zenker, specializes in so-called "Ausbauhaus" or "finished homes". Traditional prefabricated homes are usually fully assembled by the seller, while finished homes have parts of the home completed by the owner themselves. This saves money for those who are well versed in construction or have their own subcontractors, and is a common variation on prefabrication. Living Haus typically lays the foundation and provides the major pieces like walls and roof, and then it's up to the client to decide how much to do for them. There are as many homes to choose from as there are with any other prefab company, and even large multi-family homes can be done by the homeowners themselves.
