1936

Hellmuth Swietelsky establishes “Straßenbauunternehmung Ing. Hellmuth SWIETELSKY” in Gmunden. Soon afterwards, he moves his headquarters to the Upper Austrian state capital of Linz.

1938-1945

In February 2020, Swietelsky AG was confronted with historical documents that indicate that our company resorted to Jewish forced labour during the Second World War. We have now commissioned independent experts to examine the facts quickly and unsparingly. We regret this shameful aspect of our company’s history. You can learn more under this link.

1949

Hellmuth Swietelsky erects a repair workshop and living quarters for the workers on a property in St. Martin near Linz. The difficult post-war years are overcome. Reconstruction picks up speed. By implementing a bonus system, SWIETELSKY promotes the independence and personal responsibility of its employees, laying the foundations for the successful, decentralized company structure.
