Pichler Headquarter Klagenfurt:
First-class air quality from Austria for over 65 years

For more than 65 years we from Pichler ventilation technology with our energy- and cost-efficient ventilation systems have brought more comfort to apartments, office rooms, halls, and buildings. In Austria and throughout the whole of Europe. What had started as a small family business, today is continued in the second and third generation as a modern, innovative exemplary company. 

The birth of a success story 
The first chapter of our company history was written by Johann Pichler on 16th January 1959 when he bought his trade licence at Klagenfurt. In 1975, Johann Pichler took over the business from his father, founded J. Pichler GmbH & Co. KG and built up an excellent reputation in southern Austria. In 1976, an important step was made: The family business started with the manufacture of ventilation components and parts in the brand-new production site at Klagenfurt.

The years of internationalization and expansion 
The time between 1989 and 2001 at Pichler was fully geared to regional expansion – with the target of geographically approaching the customer. New sites at Guntramsdorf, Maribor, Zagreb and Graz were established. In 2004, the second production plant at Klagenfurt was commissioned. And in 2005, the subsidiary in Belgrade opened its gates. 

The time of innovations and in-house developments 
In the years that followed, the Klagenfurt head office expanded. The office complex and the production department were extended, and the in-house development department was established. Already in 2008 the first internally developed Pichler quality products came onto the market: the Pichler PDD swirl diffusor. Numerous other in-house developments followed – from air humidification units and comfort ventilation devices to passive house-certified modular units for the centralized housing ventilation as well as the heat pump combi unit PKOM4 with the new PICHLER app and smart home solutions. All of them Austrian top-quality system solutions by means of which Pichler substantiates its reputation as an innovative best practice company every day.

Expansion and further development
In addition to the expansion of our Pichler comfort ventilation product range, as well as in the area of school ventilation, further technical and infrastructural developments have been driven forward within the company. From innovations in research and development to new production processes and digitalisation, everything has been done in recent years to ensure that the company will continue to be state-of-the-art in the future. But we have also constantly invested in the area of photovoltaics and electromobility in order to be able to operate and produce even more sustainably. In addition, our international sales network in Southern and Eastern Europe has been further expanded in order to meet the wishes and needs of our international customers.

”The air that we breathe is part of our quality of life. We make a contribution towards people being able to simply feel better in their own four walls.“
