Locksmith's shop with forging work
In 1953, Franz Roither Senior opened a small locksmith's shop in Seewalchen am Attersee. In addition to the locksmith and blacksmith work required in a village, Roither also carried out work that took a special idea or a solution. He manufactured smaller machines for agriculture and industry and carried out repairs. Roither Senior also built the first presses, including veneer, mechanic and fruit presses.
Brand foundation 1973Austropressen is founded
Austropressen is founded
In 1973, son Franz Roither Junior togther with his wife Mathilde Roither founds the Austropressen brand, specialising in mechanical engineering and environmental technology. The first product to be launched on the market is a vertical baler. This has been a true success story for over 50 years. From the very beginning, the company has been characterised by a pioneering spirit, innovative strength and individuality. Initially, special machines and customised solutions were manufactured for neighbouring companies and the first developments were patented. At the same time, the demands in terms of product requirements increased. The pleasing consequence: continuous developments in waste and baling presses, customised solutions for a wide range of recyclable materials and the first deliveries beyond Austria's borders.
