On January 31, 40 years ago, Alois Wimmer laid the foundation stone for the success story of the Wimmer Group.
He started at the Thalgau site in 1984 with three employees - initially mainly with bucket and undercarriage repairs. However, with the invention of the A-Lock hydraulic quick-change system, the company quickly developed into an overall concept for hydraulic excavators.
Today, the 2nd generation family business with Managing Director Andreas Wimmer has grown to around 90 employees (75 in Thalgau and 15 in Budweis). Attachments and drilling rigs are now developed and produced for every requirement. In recent years, Wimmer has also made a name for itself as a specialist in tunnel construction. The BlueBadgers tunnel excavator series and the latest new development, the yellow FOX, are successfully in use throughout Europe.
Thank you to the entire Wimmer team and our customers and partners! We look forward to the next exciting years with new challenges and projects!
