IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO KNOW – YOU MUST ALSO APPLY. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO WANT TO – YOU MUST ALSO ACT.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Young, dynamic and successful
The Dornauer-Grillitsch company was founded as an individual enterprise in 1999 by engineer Mr. Karlheinz Dornauer-Grillitsch. The initial business included the placement of contract manufacturing services and industrial goods. Own production was limited to small numbers and simple products.
In 2003, the one-man company was incorporated into a GmbH (limited company), with official registration on 13.02.2004. Since the company was founded, the registered office of the company has been located in 8430 Leibnitz, Mitterhoferweg 26.
A few months after the incorporation of the one-man company into a limited company, a commercial property was leased as a production facility at 8435 Wagna, Marburgerstraße 109 in April 2004. The original area of manufacturing and warehouse space amounted to approx. 150 m².
In the following years, successively more area was taken at the site in Wagna, to expand the production facility. The headcount and internal production were also constantly expanded and extended.
In 2008 a further expansion of the manufacturing area took place, increasing to approximately 300 m², as well as expansion of the storage area to around 400 m² at the facility in Wagna.
In December 2015 the company relocated and moved its entire production facility from Wagna to nearby Gabersdorf and is now located at former Stabil-Werk. Starting from 2016 the company has rented a shopfloor of 2.300 m² and a storage area of 600 m². Facility in Wagna was closed by end of January 2016. Over past years the company expanded its shopfloor and storage area to a total of 8.500 m² at former Stabil-Werk.
Meanwhile the company established itself as a south-Styrian contract manufacturer and is acting on both the national and international market. The company supplies internationally active corporations in diverse industries in addition to regional companies. The product portfolio includes for instance roof accessories of renowned brick manufacturers, armrests for airliners, cover panels for combustion plants and heating pumps, parts for the automotive, railway and electric lightning industry.
Currently, the company employs 70 staff and is acting with its innovative approaches and manufacturing possiblities in an internationally and growing business environment.
