OCHSNER – AUSTRIA


COMMITTED TO THE FUTURE: SUSTAINABLE

ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE FIFTH GENERATION

Only those who have a clear goal can take the right path: Karl Ochsner is an entrepreneur with foresight and clear convictions. As a visionary and motivator, he is the fifth generation to run the family business. Knowing about the roots and more than 150 years of history, he set up OCHSNER Wärmepumpen GmbH in a new, sustainable and future-oriented manner within a few years. An open corporate culture and team spirit are just as important to him as his constant commitment to the environment, climate and social projects

FROM REGIONAL FAMILY COMPANY TO

GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY LEADER

Immediately after joining, Karl Ochsner had to cope with the turbulence of the financial crisis in 2008. The company has emerged stronger as an international technology leader and pioneer in terms of climate friendliness and renewable energies. Strategic partnerships, forward-looking investments in new technologies, in research projects and in new markets have made a significant contribution to this remarkable success story. The latest chapter: the very successful entry into the Asian market as a medium-sized company


EXCELLENT INNOVATIONS

NO YEAR WITHOUT A NEW PRODUCT

Continuous innovation is a decisive factor. The company has optimized the development and product change processes step by step – far beyond the international standard. Karl Ochsner encourages and demands from his employees an innovative spirit and the courage to think in new ways. With success: OCHSNER is the only company in the industry that has twice been awarded the Austrian State Prize. OCHSNER also received the ENERGIE GENIE innovation award from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability twice within just two years



COMMITTED TO OUR NATURE AND OUR ECONOMY

The entrepreneur is just as committed to environmental and climate protection, for example through a close partnership with the WWF Climate Group. In addition, Karl Ochsner makes his little free time available for association activities and various supervisory board positions. He is active in the heat pump associations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Europe and China, in the Senate of Economy for Europe and Germany and in the Federation of Industry


THE OCHSNER TEAM:

DIVERSITY AND OPENNESS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

Due to his ten-year US corporate career at Xerox Germany up to being a member of the executive board, Karl Ochsner is strongly influenced by the style of American corporate management – high performance leadership, operation and excellence and diversity. A corporate culture that is open to discussion, openness, diversity and the targeted promotion of women through to senior management characterize his management style. Diversity and cultural openness are an integral part of the corporate DNA. OCHSNER employs people from 15 nations
