Senn Beteiligungs GmbH
With the relocation to Erl in 2013 and the purchase of the company building in Mühlgraben 43b (Hall B) under Senn Immobilien GmbH, the bundling of the 3 holdings as of 2013 into a separate holding company, Senn Beteiligungs GmbH, also took place. This established the foundation for further external growth through company acquisitions.
Gasser – Handel mit Gießerei- und Stahlwerksbedarf Gesellschaft m.b.H. was founded in 1925 as GASSER & CO in Vienna. Since then, the focus of sales activities has been on crucibles and foundry auxiliaries in steel and non-ferrous metal casting. Since 2010 the company is located in Styria.

On 1.1.1988 Ceratec GmbH was founded in Lower Austria. From the beginning Ceratec concentrated on products in the high temperature range. Temperatures up to 1600°C thus determine our daily work. Since 2020 the location is in Erl, Tyrol.

The own energy
from hydropower and photovoltaics
Due to the conversion of our fleet to e-cars, the demand for energy is constantly increasing. In order to meet this demand, we have invested in the construction and expansion of our photovoltaic systems over the last 3 years. Since the end of 2021, we can also count a hydroelectric power plant to our group. Thus, nothing stands in the way of refueling sustainably generated energy for the electric cars.
