Austrian bakery plants and machinery for the whole world

2016.08.30

König Maschinen supplies all the right machinery, equipment and ovens for commercial and industrial bakery companies worldwide. They now intend to focus more intensively on the US market.

The Graz company König Maschinen GmbH has been supplying bakeries all round the world with high-quality, technically sophisticated baking machinery, ovens and baking equipment for the last 50 years.

The company now has high hopes for the USA, and so König is adapting its product portfolio for the US market to boost growth there over the next few years. 'Our goal is to make about 20% of our sales in the USA, although Europe will remain our core market,' explains CEO DI Wolfgang Staufer.

The company has manufacturing facilities in Austria and Hungary as well as sales subsidiaries in Germany, the USA, Russia, Italy and the Netherlands. The company recently reported annual sales of EUR 62 million with an export ratio of some 90%.

Things are also on the move for the firm in the research and development department: a whole new range of machinery is to be launched at the major industry trade fairs this autumn. There are trends even in bakery machinery, and hygiene is currently top of the list: there is increasing demand for self-cleaning equipment because of food intolerances. Whole plant solutions are a further growth area, with entire baking production lines that can bake up to 48,000 items per hour being developed.
