Our christmas party 2019

Once again we have transformed one of our production halls for the Christmas party into a festival hall. We started at 12:00 a.m. the official part with a review of the successful year 2019.

On the 25th anniversary of the company, we were able to congratulate Mr. Helmut Hagn, Mr. Rudolf Pointinger and Mr. Franz Zehetner. We were especially pleased that Mr. Gerhard Hager, Mr. Stefan Strasser and Mr. Franz Wiesner have been in the Gföllner team for 35 years - we congratulate and thank you very much.

In 2019 Mr. August Ennsfellner after 46 years of service, Mr. Gottfried Kindlinger after 45 years of service and Mr. Gerhard Hager after 35 years of service have left to go into retirement and we also wanted to say thank you for all what you have done for us.

In the course of our suggestion system for improvements at Gföllner (VWG), we awarded the best 5 suggestions with EUR 1,000 each. This year, the best suggestions came from: Helmut Hagn, Andreas Ganglmayr, Rainer Mayr, Gottfried Maier and Rene Pointinger - we thank you for the excellent suggestions and congratulations on the award.

And as well as at work, we all showed a lot of joy and endurance at the party...

Season´s Greetings 2019

Dear business partners,

thank you sincerely for the dedicated cooperation in the past year. We wish you and your loved ones a blessed and merry Christmas and a happy new year!

This year we decided to donate some money for two charity organizations instead of providing small gifts for our business partners. We donated EUR 3.000 to the Institute Caritas, a Competence Center for handicapped people and EUR 3.000 to the Upper Austrian Association for the Blind and Visually Disabled.

We would also like to inform you that our company will be closed for christmas holidays from December 23rd, 2019 until January 6th, 2020.

 

Impressions about the Gföllner year 2019

Kinastberger still go one better

For company Kinastberger Transportlogistik GmbH from Krems, we were able to put a Hiab X - HiPro 638 E-7 JIB 150 X-6 on a Scania. With this high-tech crane and the 2-axle low-bed semi-trailers with forced-steering, the slogan of our customer is absolutely right: Kinastberger still go one better.

Basic information:

  • 4-axle truck Scania
  • crane with special color RAL 9010
  • crane features: 2 tons winch, JIB, VSL+ (Variable Stability Logic +) and SAF (Semi Automatic Folding)
  • 2-axle low-bed semi-trailer with hydraulic forced-steering

By land, by sea, and in the air!

As each of our products leaves the production plant in St. Georgen near Grieskirchen (Austria) normaly by road thereare still some other means of transport which can be employed to make our modules to reach their final destination all over the world.
The destination of the first transport leg is usually a North Sea port or to the Mediterranean. But more and more the inland waterway via the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal or the railway is used for particularly large and heavy modules.
The next Danube harbour as well as Linz Airport (LNZ), which is also rated for the Antonov 124 with its 3000 metres CAT IIIb runwa,y is only about 50 km away. The Antonov is used only for express deliveries and we made a short video from the last loading for you.

 

Let’s go – we are starting to build plant 4

End of October the construction work of plant 4 starts. The existing areal will be extended by approx. 3 ha in west direction. The production area will be enlarged by about 10,000 sqm to a total area of 35,000 sqm.

An additional office building with about 1,500 sqm offers plenty of space for creative and high-quality work.

Especially the crane services, container assembly, container rental service and automated manufacturing processes will be enlarged with this plant extension.

Completion of the new plant is planned for September 2020.

Flight around the construction project

Handover of the new mobile testing device TUK 4 to ASFINAG Austria

This summer we were once again allowed to hand over a trailer based test device to ASFINAG Austria. This mobile test center ensures more safety on Austrian roads and checks the roadworthiness of vehicles.

The test equipment was delivered by our longtime partner Supanz.

For an optimal test procedure, the axle clearance tester can be set up separately from the brake test bench with a crawler chassis.

The cycle of nature

We were recently able to deliver for the compost and soil specialist Huemer Kompost GmbH a Scania R560 6x4NB with a FUTURA 18 Multilift including a Skip Top 2.0 covering system.

With special color RAL6018, the FlexControls radio control (FLRC) and the hydraulic container locking system a successful operation is secured.
