When master mason Johann Hitthaller founded the company in 1907, he could not have foreseen that it would develop over the decades into a competent and versatile provider of construction services. Today, Hitthaller+Trixl is valued by customers and partners alike as an independent, success-driven company that is absolutely trustworthy and financially stable. Alongside its headquarters in Leoben, the company has branch offices in Graz, Kapfenberg, Linz, Trumau, Wels and Zirl. The master builder and engineer Peter Hitthaller, who was the 3rd generation of the family to be a managing partner up until 2012, is now chairman of the company's supervisory board, where he maintains a promising balance between tradition and modernity together with around 640 employees.
The company took an important step in expanding its civil engineering expertise in 2004 when it established an efficient asphalt and road construction department headed by Josef Ulbing, an expert with a long track record in the industry. An existing asphalt mixing plant was acquired 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 around three years of planning, the project received the green light in August 2015 and was realized within a few months in partnership with the experts from BENNINGHOVEN.
