With an abundance of ideas and visions, Josef Thannhuber takes over the installation business of his uncle Hans Einhell in 1964. In the following years, he expands Einhell into a prospering, global company.
In order to provide a sound basis for further investments and long-term growth on a national and international level, Einhell was converted from a family-run SME into a globally operating market-listed corporation.
After about 40 years as head of Einhell, Josef Thannhuber initiates a change of generations in the management level, in 2000. The focus of the new CEO Andreas Kroiss on solutions for workshop and garden sets the course for a successful future.
Einhell recognises early the great desire of customers for freedom and autonomy and introduces with Power X-Change the now so successful battery platform.
Einhell positions itself as the high-performance Enabler and for the fi rst time in the company‘s history exceeds the sales mark of 500 million euros.
