Currently the Werkraum has 83 members with diverse industry backgrounds. A good 40% of the member companies are wood processing businesses (joiners, carpenters, coopers, floor layers). Nearly 60% of the members come from the construction industry and the building trades, from plumbing and electrical companies or operate in the glass, metal, textile, leather and stone processing industries. Bakers, printers, type designers, gardeners, goldsmiths, butchers and new service providers round out the wide range of professions in the trades.


The Werkraum Bregenzerwald advocates for the trades continuing to survive in the Bregenz Forest region. It wants to attract young people to the trades, give impetus to cooperation amongst the companies and with outside partners. Important groundwork is also performed by local craft associations and guilds. Membership in the Werkraum is linked with the company site in the Bregenz Forest region.
