Pöchtrager – a (hi)story of success

Pöchtrager was founded in 1979 as a repair workshop for agricultural machinery. Ten years later, thanks to many exciting enquiries, we started to establish ourselves as a metalworking business, supported by continuous investments.

In 1991, the production hall with its indoor crane was built. In 2000, we extended our building to include a measuring room for mechanical production. Our fleet of machinery also grew larger and larger. We are especially proud of our latest investment: a large-scale photovoltaic system.


Pöchtrager was founded by Josef Pöchtrager as a sole trader, and was primarily a repair workshop for agricultural machinery.

Restructuring of the business to become Pöchtrager Metallbearbeitung GmbH, with Markus Pöchtrager as Managing Director.


A photovoltaics system with 97 kWp output was built. This investment allows us to generate the majority of our energy requirement ourselves. Any surplus is transferred to an energy community. In doing so, we are proactively supporting the energy transition. This is our contribution to climate protection.

We look forward to hearing from you!
