Holzkurier, the leading Austrian publication for the timber sector, has named Combilift as its Timber Trade Supplier of the Year for 2022. The company’s continual product development, its impressive growth in the Austrian market and a policy of always putting the customer centre stage were just some of the reasons cited by the editorial panel for choosing Combilift.
Combilift delivered its first truck to Austria in 2003, when one of the original C-Series multidirectional models was bought by a customer from the timber sector. Since 2018, Gregor Kramar has held the position of Combilift’s Austrian Country Manager and has overseen the steady growth of the dealer network and the expansion of the customer base. For the last few years Combilift’s incoming orders have recorded double-digit growth rates in German-speaking countries and sales of more than €4 million were generated in Austria last year.
“Although the majority of our customers come from the timber sector, we are also seeing significant growth in other markets, for example in the steel industry and in aluminum, modular and window construction,” said Kramar. “Austria is a demanding market and customers have very high expectations when it comes to product quality and service, which we can fulfil thanks to our wide, ever growing range and our reputation for putting the customer first.”
“We are delighted with this award, which recognises the position that Combilift now enjoys in this region, which is home to some of the world’s leading companies in the timber industry,” said Kramar. “So, many thanks go to the editors of Holzkurier and of course our ever growing band of satisfied customers!”
