Years of experience, extensive technical know-how and flexibility

Our company is big enough to fulfill the highest requirements AND small enough to respond to individual requests.

In 1953 Roither Maschinenbau was founded by Franz Roither Senior. At that time the company was specialising in veneering, mechanical but also fruit presses.

In 1973 the first baling press with the brand name Austropressen was produced. The development of a user-friendly series of presses and an European marketing, sales and distribution network followed.

In the 1990’s the cooperation with the Austrian Lavu GmbH started. Until today, more than 200 waste collection centers in Austria are equipped with the specially designed horizontal baler of the series KNL.

In 1999 the the production area was doubled and the export activities were extended to more than 40 countries worldwide. In 2007 an additional production facility was built with a production area of approx. 1.200 m2. The constant optimizations of the production process ensured further improvement in product quality. The range of products was continually increased

Customers from diverse industries worldwide were convinced by the reliability and high quality of the products; including small businesses from trade and gastronomy, great recycling and waste disposal company, international retail chains, as well as plants from paper-, carton-, plastic production and manufacturer of beverage cans.


Major investment in new production halls and machine stock

Following a roughly 10-month construction period, new halls with 3,000 m² production and storage area were commissioned in the winter of 2017. A total of approximately €4 million was invested while at the same time a top-quality working environment was created with an innovative hall ventilation system, environmentally-friendly LED illumination and an energy-saving heating system that employs a heat recovery concept. Solar panels are to be installed on parts of the hall roof so that we can generate our own power. Innovation in the machine sector is represented by the introduction of parts washing and sand blasting systems. These guarantee clean, efficient preparation for painting while an additional coating line has been added to ensure standardised, better quality paint finishes. Robotic welding machines and two new CNC processing centres significantly increase production capacity and generate additional jobs.
