History

It all began with a brilliant founder

 

Helmut Koenig

came from a family of bakers in Hartberg that looked back on a long baking tradition.  Early in his life he got to know the demands and problems of the bakers' trade and designed his first bakery machines to make his parents' hard work easier.

 

In 1966, Helmut Koenig, while still studying at the Technical University in Graz, founded “Maschinenfabrik Helmut Koenig” as a one-man business. From the beginning, the soon-to-be graduate engineer had a firm vision: Technology has to serve human needs. The aim of all efforts was to support bakeries in production. This philosophy continued to shape the company after the death of Helmut Koenig in 1992 and still holds true today, securing Koenig’s leading position in the world market.
