EMPL receives award as a traditional Tyrolean company!


30 traditional Tyrolean companies with special anniversaries were honoured by government member Patrizia Zoller - Frischauf at the Congress Igls during a gala night. EMPL - with a 90th anniversary - was also among the 30 companies present.

“Traditional Tyrolean companies secure jobs and the supply of goods for our population while maintaining our social system with their taxes. We as the state of Tyrol therefore want to use this celebration to thank them for their commitment and their solidarity with our state,” said Patrizia Zoller - Frischauf as the initiator of this award in her address.

90 years ago, Josef Empl laid the foundation for a company whose reputation extends across the entire globe today - the EMPL Fahrzeugwerk limited company. In 1926, Josef Empl, the grandfather and great - grandfather of the current company managers, bought the building Kaltenbach number 5. It had already served as a blacksmith's shop for over 200 years. This is where the “Zillertal wooden ploughs”, which were known and valued throughout the country at the time, were manufactured. Production of the first lorry bodies began in 1964. The production of custom - made special models has been a domain of the Zillertal factory ever since.
