It Didn’t Start with a Horse and Cart
Keep both feet on the ground, take advantage of progress, and work hard. That was Peter Lonsdorfer’s philosophy when he started the company back in 1945. So, our story didn’t start out with a horse and cart, but with a modern truck. In 1986, Peter turned the company over to his son Werner. It was Werner who decided to market construction materials and offer services for wind turbines, and the company is still successfully active in both of these areas today. In December of 2015, Swedish entrepreneur Frederik Liljenqvist became the company’s managing director and sole shareholder. Frederik Liljenqvist is committed to carrying on the tradition started by the Lonsdorfers – expansion & progress based on experience.
