He was born in Hallein, Austria, in 1958.
After completing elementary school, Georg Scheicher attended the technical college (HTL) for the timber industry. He masters the art of carpentry and spends a lot of his spare time working in the family business. Finally, he moves to Vienna to study at the local University of Economy (thesis topic: „Architecture as a Marketing Instrument“).
The studying and perfecting of the carpentry trade in Austria and Denmark (at Johannes Hansen) have formed his awareness and visions for the usage of wood in a sustained manner.
He lives in the midst of nature, close to the company headquarters, but nevertheless never ceases to venture out into different parts of our planet.
Since 1997 he is the head of Alois Scheicher GmbH and has specialised in the manufacturing of high-quality partition systems.

RIOF now offers her the unique possibility to combine her personal love for nature with both aesthetics and economy.
