History

Shaping the future from tradition

The Frühwald Group – 89 years of lived history

When Anton Frühwald founded the company in 1930, he could not have imagined that he would bring an internationally active model of success to the world. After all, generations later, his successors still appreciate the family values on which the company’s history and tradition are based. Today, the traditional point of view is optimally combined with the professionalism of an international group – in three countries and supported by the motivation of the great Frühwald employees.
