Right from the very start, Mühlböck has specialised in the development and manufacture of timber drying plants. This focus has been maintained to this day. The complete production of plant components is carried out at the company’s Eberschwang location, as is the programming of the control software.
With 12,000 plants in operation worldwide, the company has a wealth of experience to draw on.
Mühlböck has launched a number of product innovations over the last few years that, from a technical perspective, have established a unique position for the company in the market place. The new systems are able save up to 50% of the energy normally used during drying.
...the company already numbered 13 employees. Production was relocated to the newly built production hall (1,000 m²) at the current company location.
In 2002, the VT Trockentechnik company was taken over from Dr. Vanicek. Production of plant components was subsequently carried out at both the Eberschwang and Hartberg locations.
...the 1003 system was developed. The system allows energy consumption during timber drying to be reduced by 50%!
The 1003 system is available for our drying chambers, progressive kilns and belt dryers. It is also possible to convert older systems to type 1003.
A number of 1003 projects have been implemented to date in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Finland and Latvia.
... Richard Mühlböck starts a new era in the company Mühlböck with the takeover of the management.
170 employees are now employed at the Eberschwang and Hartberg sites, and the number is increasing.
Today, 12,500 drying chambers are successfully in operation worldwide ...
