Englmayer looks back at more than 160 years of history. In 1858, Martin Dollhaeubl founded the company and led it until 1862, when his stepson Georg Englmayer took over. Later, the company was named after him.
In 1872, new premises in the Bahnhofstrasse in Wels were opened, which would remain to be the company’s Headquarters for the following 100 years.
Only little later, in 1882, Englmayer was announced “Authorised Customs Agent of the Austro-Hungarian Empire”, a title which significantly influenced the company’s further development.
Wiesinger Franz, an entrepreneur from the Upper Austrian town of Bad Ischl, acquired the business in 1907. Under his leadership, growth continued and peaked in 1915, with 24 horses transporting goods back and forth.
WWI and WWII as well as the interwar years proved to be a difficult time for the company, especially when the Headquarters in the Bahnhofstrasse in Wels were attacked and bombed in 1944. However, things started to improve when Karl Wiesinger became Managing Director in 1953 and sought to position the company as a customs expert. Between 1963 and 1976, a bonded warehouse was built, offering Englmayer’s customers 4,000 m2 of storage facilities for customs goods.
In 1979, Heinz Wiesinger assumed leadership and opened Englmayer’s new Headquarters in the Wiesenstrasse in 1981.
In 1998, G. Englmayer achieved ISO 9002 registration, one year before Andreas Gaber, the current Managing Director, entered the Board. In 2003, quality standards had improved even further, resulting in ISO 9001 as well as ISO 14001 certificates.
In 2008, the company not only celebrated its 150th birthday but also initiated the foundation of the subsidiary “G. Englmayer, Zoll und Consulting GmbH”, which stands for customs expertise and positions itself on the market as a customs expert.
In 2009, G. Englmayer became AEO (Authorised Economic Agent) and is now one of only a few Austrian freight forwarders which may hold F (Full) certification.
In 2012, “G. Englmayer, Zoll und Consulting GmbH” moved into a fully refurbished office building, including generous seminar facilities, which came in handy when the “Customs Academy” was established in 2013.
Today, the “Customs Academy” offers tailor-made trainings as well as pre-designed customs workshops for beginners and advanced learners and specialised seminars on customs regulations and amendments in customs law. For any further information, please follow the link (German only):
