The Styrian manufacturer of prefabricated basements takes the next step in environmental protection. Following the conversion work to modernize the production hall, production at KAMMEL resumed in February.

For Managing Director Dipl. Ing. Franz Strobl, 20 years after the production hall was built, “it was necessary to renew certain components in order to meet KAMMEL’s high quality standards. The increasing demand for finished concrete products made an increase in efficiency unavoidable. With the modernizations, we are also securely positioned for the future.”

The modernization also benefits the employees. By eliminating heavy tasks such as shuttering or inserting reinforcement, individual work steps are made easier and the risk of accidents is minimized. Processes are increasingly being converted from manual to digital production without losing jobs. The safety aspect for employees was a key component of the new concept.

A shuttering and demolding robot, a reinforcement robot, a concrete spreader and an additional compaction station were also installed. There is also a turning device to enable double walls with integrated thermal insulation to be produced more efficiently and with greater insulation thickness. The control unit has also been completely updated. “In total, we have invested two million euros for further growth,” says Strobl.

The first steps towards resource-saving modernization were already taken in 2021 with a photovoltaic system on the roof of the KAMMEL production hall.
The KAMMEL team and its suppliers are delighted with the successful completion of the modernization work.
The reinforcement robot produces reinforcement on demand without waste and thus contributes to the sustainable use of resources.
The new shuttering robot eliminates heavy work such as shuttering or demolding.

Did you know that we use recycled car tires in cement production?

The motto here is ‘Recycling old tires instead of disposing of them.’ In Ohlsdorf, Upper Austria, the only used tire recycling plant in Austria is located. Kias Recycling GmbH, a joint venture between ART and the Kirchdorfer Group, supplies this valuable alternative fuel for our cement plant. This plant is renowned globally for its cleanest cement production.


Do you like to think outside the box?

Do you believe that we manufacture stairs for fish?

Fish ladders assist fish in overcoming barriers such as dams or hydroelectric power plants. The unique Kirchdorfer fish passage system is a clever prefabricated system, much like LEGO blocks. In Austria, it has been used to build the highest fish passage in Europe.


Construction sites and a hammer in hand are totally your thing?

Did you know that we are part of the largest photovoltaic facade system in Austria?

In 2023, our joint venture Martini Beton renovated its office building. The exterior transformation resulted in an integrated PV facade that annually produces environmentally friendly solar power equivalent to the energy consumption of around 50 single-family homes.
