History of Berndorf Immobilien

In the beginning, there were knives, forks and a bear: It all started in 1843 with the first industrial production of cutlery in a metalwork factory in Berndorf, Lower Austria. This eventually led to the development of Berndorf AG.

180 years later: Berndorf AG is an industrial group operating in more than 20 countries worldwide. The group is world market leader in key industrial sectors. The associated companies primarily work in high-tech segments of metal processing. And Berndorf cutlery still enhances dining tables and festive banquets – both at home and in the gastronomy industry.

In 2007, Berndorf Immobilien was founded as a sister company of Berndorf AG. The company's goal is the sustainable development of real estate as long term investment. The first groundbreaking of Berndorf Immobilien was dedicated to the renovation and expansion of the historic factory premises in Berndorf. One core competence of Berndorf Immobilien is the development of industrial and commercial properties. Over time, there has also been an increasing focus on residential properties. Since 2023, Berndorf Immobilien has been enhancing its activities with a larger team and in a new office in Vienna.
