When master mason Johann Hitthaller founded the company in 1907, he could not have foreseen that it would develop over the decades to become a proficient and versatile construction service provider. Today, Hitthaller+Trixl is valued by customers and partners alike as an independent, suc-cess-driven company that is absolutely trustworthy and financially resilient. Alongside the headquar-ters in Leoben, it has branch offices in Graz, Kapfenberg, Linz, Trumau, Wels and Zirl. Peter Hitthaller, an engineer, master builder and, until 2012, the 3rd generation of the family to be a managing part-ner, now chairs the supervisory board of the company, where he maintains a promising balance be-tween tradition and modernity along with the some 640-strong workforce.
The company took a major step on the way to expanding its civil engineering expertise when, in 2004, it established an efficient asphalt and road construction department headed up by Josef Ulbing, an expert with a long track record in the industry. An existing asphalt mixing plant was ac-quired, to ensure that the company‘s own high quality standards were consistently maintained along the entire process chain.
The new line of business performed well, and, over the course of time, the vision of expanding the road construction business segment developed into the idea of erecting one of the most modern asphalt mixing plants in Austria. After three years in the pipeline, the project finally received the green light in August 2015 and was delivered within a few months in partnership with the experts from BENNINGHOVEN.
