Kässbohrer is the leading European manufacturer of car carriers. The traditional enterprise with a history of more than 100 years of vehicle manufacturing is primarily owned by the Kässbohrer family. The Eugendorf headquarters (close to Salzburg, Austria) is the production site for high-quality car carriers as well as for special vehicles. The enterprise is characterized by high innovative capacity, by outstanding capability and by highly efficient products.
Together with our subsidiary company ROHR Spezialfahrzeuge GmbH, located in Straubing (Germany), our strategy of growth in the field of technically superior special vehicles will be continued consistently.
Only if features of products and corporate character correspond to each other, the standard of the services for our owners, our customers, our suppliers and our business partners can also fulfil our own expectations.
