About Mühlböck Austria:

Company History

In 1982 Kurt Mühlböck founded the company with only one employee - the plants were produced in the garage at his own home.

The first drying kiln was delivered by car on a trailer to Tischlerei Soriat in Oberwang.

Today the company counts more than 120 people.
From the outset Mühlböck specialised in timber drying, and that has continued until this day.

The company can draw on the experience of 12,000 lines in operation around the globe.

Mühlböck has launched a number of product innovations over the last few years that, from a technical perspective, have established a unique position for the company in the market place.

The new systems are able to save up to 50% of the energy normally used during drying.



...the company already numbered 13 employees. Production was relocated to the newly built production hall (1,000 m²) at the current company location.

Take over of VT Trockentechnik

In 2002, the VT Trockentechnik company was taken over from Dr. Vanicek. Production of plant components was subsequently carried out at both the Eberschwang and Hartberg location



...the new generation of dryers was developed and launched on the market.

  • Type 603 - the fastest possible drying at low temperature and best possible moisture dispersion, used for drying hardwood

  • Type 606 - savings in thermal energy of up to 20%

The first Mühlböck progressive kiln

The first classic progressive kiln was installed in 2009 for the Holzwerke Gebr. Schneider company, in Eberhardzell (Germany).


...the 1003 system was developed. The system allows energy consumption during timber drying to be reduced by 50%!

The 1003 system is available for our dry kilns, progressive kilns and belt dryers. It is also possible to convert older systems to type 1003.

A number of 1003 projects have been implemented to date in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Finland,  Latvia, North America and Italy.

Takeover of the management

A new era in the company Mühlböck started 2018 with the takeover of the management by Richard Mühlböck. About 160 employees are now employed at the Eberschwang and Hartberg sites. Today, 12,500 dry kilns are successfully in operation worldwide.
