In the broadest possible sense, the success story of AHT Cooling Systems started in 1442. The founding of an ironworks at today's location followed by the progress of technology led to the manufacturing of electronic household appliances by the company Bauknecht in the 50ies and 60ies of the 20th century.
A change of ownership and the reestablishment of the plant in 1983 – named “Austria Haustechnik” – were followed in 1988 by the successful privatization which led to the thriving company of today.
Currently AHT operates under the name “AHT Cooling Systems GmbH” and serves the market worldwide with more than a 97% share of business going into exports. Together with its high quality product policy and the “green” approach, this global appearance makes AHT to one of the most successful companies in its business sector.
