Three of the nine sons learned the carpentry trade, following in the family tradition. In 1908, Johann Barth Jr took over the company gaining great fame as an imaginative and versatile wood craftsman. Many of his works still bear witness to his unique ability and high quality artistry. After his death in 1944, his brother August took over the company until 1957, at which point his son took care of the company that had belonged to his uncle. In the third generation, the current owner, Josef Barth, has been more than equal to recognising the needs of the time.
