About KaindlVisit Website
For more than 100 years Kaindl has continued to demonstrate just how innovative a company with a rich history can be. What began as a small sawmill in Lungötz in 1897 is now taking the world by storm from Salzburg with a never-ending supply of new ideas and products. Originally founded as a sawmill that very quickly developed into a recognised specialist in wood processing.
In 1962 Kaindl began producing chipboards – and was amongst the first to do so.
Complete restructuring in Lungötz. Becoming a new plant for continuous pressed laminate and worktops.
In 1989 a disastrous major fire almost completely destroyed the Salzburg production works. At a cost totalling some 150 million Euro the Kaindl establishment in Salzburg was rebuilt and modernised.
Laminate flooring production comes on stream. Within 10 years Kaindl joins the ranks of the world market leaders.
In 1999 an MDF plant representing a total investment of 88 million Euro is built within the short space of 6 months on the company-owned land in Salzburg.
The Kaindl Megastore – located immediately next door to the Salzburg production works and providing 40.000 m² of storage space – ensures the smooth-running distribution of the entire stock programme.
