After 20 years of experience in the field of mechanical technology and technical customer service Karl Neulichedl founds his company at Prato Isarco / Alto Adige. With only one employee the concept of the drying ironer gets developed. At the beginning of the business activity the productive part was managed, for logistic reasons, by a third partner. The production amounted three machines in the first year.
Daughter Karin Neulichedl enters in the company as the head of administration.
The production of the ironers is now done at the company’s site. The regional success of the drying ironer leads to an internationalisation of the commercial activities and relationships.
The first exported machine goes beyond the Italian border to Austria.
