some just see a screw
we see new possibilities.


There are people who have a different view of the world. Gerhard Hubmann, the managing director of TENZ and inventor of the new wood building screw, is one of them.

He has been working with screws for wood construction for over 20 years. From his expertise in all aspects of this everyday product came his drive to reinvent the screw.

Two central problems for the application of a screw in wood were particularly close to his heart: – Reduce the use of force during application – and minimise the energy required.

Perry Ingredient Branding

Hello UK

The Styrian innovation comes to England. Together with A. Perry, a unique screw programme “TENZ from Perry“ has been created for the English market. Together with the original TENZ screws of 6, 8 and 10 mm diameter, the Styrian innovation has also been available in England since the end of 2020.


Sales Launch

Sales in Europe start with distribution partners. In Austria, the wood building screw is available via the company’s own online shop.


Hello USA

In 2019, the world’s largest home improvement chain “The Home Depot”, based in the USA, decided to equip its own wood screw line “Deckmate” with TENZ® Technology, which is now available in 2,200 home improvement stores in every state in the USA.


State Price

"Ingeniously simple - simply ingenious: the low-energy screw 'Developed in Austria' wins, because it opens up new markets and also makes a contribution to the environment and occupational safety," said the State Prize jury.

Red Dot Award

Red Dot Packaging

The sophisticated packaging design of the PEEKBOX was awarded the Red Dot Award: Packaging Design 2018. The screw head serves as a button to open the presentation box, which arouses the consumer’s curiosity.


Production Ready

After 3 years of development work in cooperation with the University of Karlsruhe (KIT) and the Technical University of Graz, the TENZ Stairs thread technology is ready.

Tenz first idea

The Idea

Gerhard Hubmann says: “I thought of one of the original forms: a double helix. I simply divided the helix and moved the segments towards each other. I achieve a significantly reduced friction and thus reduce the amount of force needed to screw it in.”
