Founded in 2000, a success story began based on the know-how and passion of our founder, Johann Gierlinger.
With the entrepreneurship of Gerald Aichinger in the background, a major player in the Austrian meat industry, this foundation was secured.
The first company, in Tunari, Romania, was engaged in the production of skewers. Today, at the newly built site, mainly breaded and contact-fried meat products are produced on 5 ultra-modern production lines.
Today the company operates in 5 locations within Europe and is the innovation and market leader in many areas. Catering wholesalers, large kitchens, food service and the food industry value our quality, safety and efficiency. The retail trade is also discovering the Gierlinger brand and are rewarded again and again by returned buying from consumers.
After the sudden death of Johann Gierlinger in July 2020, the management was taken over by Dipl. Ing. Peter Schulze and Johann's brother Thomas Gierlinger, who ensures that the family tradition is carried on. As authorised signatory, Angelika Lehner has assumed the commercial responsibility for the holding company. The expansion initiated by Johann Gierlinger with company expansions at various locations will be continued. The company is and will continue to be owned by the Aichinger and Gierlinger families.
Gierlinger Holding is now equipped for further successful growth, thanks to its expansion strategy and very experienced management team with international experience.
