OCHSNER Wärmepumpen GmbH was founded in 1978 by graduate engineer Karl Ochsner. He is now managing partner and runs the company together with his son Karl Junior.
The company was one of the first in Europe to begin manufacturing heat pumps on an industrial scale. OCHSNER Wärmepumpen now has a significant share of the market for innovative heating and air-conditioning technology in Austria and Germany as well as in Eastern Europe.
It also operates sales and service centres in these countries. OCHSNER products can also be found in many other European countries and even as far afield as Australia.
OCHSNER is regarded as a technology leader and is one of the best-known European manufacturers in the sector. The company's Haag plant currently manufactures up to 8000 heat pumps per year.
OCHSNER - strength through tradition
OCHSNER's head office was founded in Silesia back in 1872. At that time, however, the company's product range was limited to appliances and pumps.
Between 1946 and 1992 the Linz factory was renowned for its technical excellence in process pumps. Among its customers it counted well-known international mechanical engineering of equipment companies as well as the US Navy and NASA.
Since 1992 Karl Ochsner and his team have concentrated exclusively on heat pumps. He is now assisted by his son Karl Ochsner Junior.
Looking to the future
