ÖkoFen celebrates 15th anniversary with Wood Pellet Heating System

11. December 2012

The success story of the heating manufacturer ÖkoFen in Niederkappel in Austria started fifteen years ago with the introdution of the first modern pellet heating system in Europe.

“There were no rules or regulations back then – neither for wood pellets nor for heating systems. Building laws and regulations of admission had to be adapted after time. There were only a few wood pellet manufacturers and there was no infrastructure for the delivery of pellets either. It only started when more and more people realised that wood pellet heating is an excellent alternative to gas heating.”, remembers Herbert Ortner, Founder and Managing Director of ÖkoFen.

Over 45,000 wood pellet heating systems have been delivered to industrial, commercial and private customers to date. ÖkoFen’s export share is over 83% and with their latest entry into the Russian market ÖkoFen is now present in over 16 countries worldwide. Those countries include Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, France, Denmark, Belgium, Czech Republic, England and Ireland.
