about us

The roots of HOLZMANN and ZIPPER are reaching back as far as into the year 1886. Back then Johann Schörgenhuber sen. with a very few employees founded his smithery in Haslach.

A few years later Johann Schörgenhuber jun. took over the smithery from his father and started with the trading of various products too. The foundation for a successful trading company was thus laid.


1995 Klaus Schörgenhuber and his partner Erich Humer brought the trademark "HOLZMANN" to life and ventured with their woodworking and metalworking machinery the big step into the international market.

In 2008 Daniel Schörgenhuber and Gerhard Rad founded the Company "ZIPPER". The two brands were able to successfully establish themselves on the global market.
 

As of today, the corporate group is one of the global players in the field of machinery and workshop equipment.

The coordination and execution of business proceedings are carried out in different locations and countries.

Project beekeeping

Did you know that our company logo is not just on our machines but also on honey glasses?

Beekeeping as balance

It all started with Daniel Schörgenhuber's interest in bees. He wanted to start beekeeping years ago himself, to reduce stress and to balance work. Since he does not only have a lot to do with his job, but he also often travels abroad, he soon realized that there is not enough time for it. Bees are sensitive beings and no machines, which can be switched on and off at the push of a button. You need a lot of time and the will to take the necessary responsibility.

But he never wanted to reject this idea and so the idea came to him to start everything as community project: He set up the bee colonies, the necessary equipment, and offered a 40-hour course for the interested held by a professional. Immediately 20 people were involved and the project began in summer 2015 with the first course unit.

The boxes were of course made with Holzmann machines - from our customer Herbert Grafeneder. In total, they are home to 10 colonies.

In 2016 the project threw the long-awaited yield for the first time and you can believe us, our "Mühlviertler" forest and blossom honey is damn delicious!
