The success story of HAUSER company

1946

Rudolf Hauser establishes the service and installation business for refrigeration equipment in Linz, Urfahr. The first logo officially entered in the company's trademark register already shows the penguin at that time that accompanies HAUSER as the company's logo.

1965

HAUSER manufactures refrigerated cabinets from wood, sheet metal, cork insulation and stainless steel coverings until 1965. The Schönreiter bar in St. Martin is still in operation. HAUSER is already showing itself to be innovation-minded with ceiling cooling system patented by Ing. Rudolf Hauser.

1971

With the setup of a production site in St. Martin, HAUSER achieves the objective of producing large numbers of metallic refrigerated cabinets. Refrigerated cabinets, prefabricated refrigerated cabinets and cold room doors are manufactured on the latest production lines.

Following his successful work for the company Dr Erwin Hauser is taking over as CEO. With its strategic decisions he is continuing with the previously successful route and is therefore guaranteeing a sustainable and forward-looking corporate development.
