"TECHNOLOGY - is progress for the benefit of people and the environment"
Kahlbacher Machinery has associated itself with this motto for over 65 years.


No name is so closely linked to the theme of winter road services, as that of Kahlbacher.
In 1949, Toni Kahlbacher with his wife Marianne started the company in their private home. The focus was on the development of concrete mixers and construction hoists for the building renewal program.

Toni Kahlbacher recognised the need for snow ploughs at this time, due to lack of suitable vehicles for roads, which then where mainly cleared of snow by horse drawn snow ploughs made of wood.

Pioneering spirit, flexibility and great foresight shaped the history of the company for over 65 years.

In the 1960s Kahlbacher developed into a well known supplier in the winter services sector.

New innovation increased the number of products in the field of road maintenance equipment, to meet the demands from the growth in road traffic.

In the 1970s, the foundations were laid for airport services technology.
The success continued in the 1980s resulting in two further factories in Amstetten and Kitzbühel. During this decade, rail technology was also launched. 

In 1980 the limited company of Toni Kahlbacher GmbH was founded in Kitzbühel.

The maxim of the company is to offer the appropriate device for each type of clearing operation. Today the company is able to offer snow clearing equipment for road, rail and airport.

This success has been created by high-quality, experienced craftsmanship, coupled with application and reliability in service and the trust of our customers.


Kahlbacher - "safety on the road" for over 65 years!
