The Thöni Group

A family-run group of companies with a long tradition

As a far-sighted, family-owned company, the Thöni group has attached great importance to growth and sustainable development for more than 50 years. And the strategy is reflected in all areas of the company, with aluminium profiles made from up to 80 % recycled material, automotive components designed for both lightweight construction and e-mobility, biogas plants for extracting energy from organic waste, machine and plant components for generating renewable energy, and hoses to suit a wide range of applications.

To secure our ability to drive innovation in all areas with our solutions, Thöni employs highly qualified employees with a fascination for technology and innovation. A range of personal and professional development activities are available for our employees to take part in at the Thöni Academy.

The group head office is located in Telfs, Austria. We also have plants in the towns of Landeck and Pfaffenhofen in Austria, Kempten in Germany and Rovereto in Italy.

The Management

Let us introduce ourselves

Our family-run company is guided by flexibility, reliability and continuity, a practice that informs our day-to-day activities as much as our strategic decisions. For example, the construction of our new plant in Pfaffenhofen is just as much an expression of our dynamic growth as our strong regional roots, motivating us to work tirelessly on creating innovative solutions.

In line with our values, we place the focus on maximum product and service quality as well as on constant ongoing development. This is evident in all areas of the company, where it is shaped by the management and put into practice by our employees.

Helmut Thöni is the chairman of the managing board and responsible for the Aluminium and Automotive Components divisions as well as Thöni Manufacturing GmbH.

The machine and plant engineering division of the company, comprising environmental/energy engineering, the Landeck metal works, casting equipment and the hose production division, is the responsibility of Anton Mederle. As the head of the Thöni Academy, his brief also encompasses in-house training and further education as well as research and development.

Thomas Bock is the CFO and responsible for internal services, along with finance and accounts, risk management, law and human resources.

Company History

The Thöni story from 1964 to the present day

The company was founded in 1964 by Arthur Thöni; although it began life as a metal working shop, it soon began to develop. Only a few years after it was established, a new production building was built in Telfs, which has also since been expanded. In 1970, the company took over the hose production facility of the hundred-year-old company Elsinger & Söhne, and in 1975, the firm’s in-house anodising plant also commenced operations. In 1984, the first of meanwhile four aluminium extrusion presses went into production, marking the start of the industrial manufacture of aluminium profiles. That same year, the company took over the Landeck metal works. Further business units added since then include environmental engineering, casting equipment, and Thöni Automotive Components GmbH. In 2018, work commenced on the construction of a new plant in Pfaffenhofen, with a total hall area of 20,000 m². The new location will house the fifth aluminium extrusion press, in combination with a hydroforming press and fully automated machining plants. It is here that aluminium components for the automobile industry and other sectors will be produced, beginning in the second half of 2019.
