Joining the family-owned company as a trainee in 1962, I learned the basics of our trade and successfully passed my journeyman’s exam in 1966.
Only four years later, I was received the title of master craftsman.

Following that, I focused on my further development in the company. First and foremost, I took part in the training and further education of our apprentices and skilled workers.

In 1983, my parents passed the company on to me as the sole proprietorship. I continued to run it together with my wife from 1984 onwards. Our son Peter has supported us since 1989.

In 1990, our company became a Ges.m.b.H.

In 1995, we founded our mechanical engineering company, where I am still working as managing director today.

That same year, I took up my activities in the Viennese Mechatronics Guild. I have been sharing my knowledge of the industry as Guild Master since 2005 there.

My ambition is and has always been achieving a combination of work and family to keep steady growth at harmony with a balanced quality of life.

In this context, I am very happy that my granddaughter has been working in the company since 2018 as well, along with other family members. I have always been motivated to work with my family and staff to develop the legacy of my predecessors and carry it securely into the generations to come.

Customer satisfaction and the ongoing pursuit of perfection have served as keys to success for me here.
