Nearly no one combines progress and tradition as Brantner does. The roots go back to a long-established forge, situated in Laa/Thaya. The company survived World War I and II and has grown from a small forge to a production site of air-tired horse trailers and further on tractor trailors. Progress and further development have been always part of the company and led it to what it is today.


The current market position (market leader in Austria and number 1 in Western Europe concerning tipper production) is due to Brantner's strong faith in its business concept and the need of progress and further development.


In terms of tradition the company is still owned and run by the family. Now the 8th generation is responsible to perpetuate quality, experience and diversity in tipper production.
