The company started out manufacturing tower construction cranes, the focus later shifted towards manufacturing container cranes, followed by hydro power equipment. Kuenz is one of the oldest and most prestigious mechanical engineering companies in the western region of Austria. The foundation of the Kuenz business philosophy is a continuous face-to-face dialogue with our customers.
