1898: Saw the beginning of fork production in Schorndorf
  Saw the beginning of fork production in Schorndorf

The first agricultural forks were produced by the company Wilhelm Abt in Schorndorf in the Württemberg region of Germany near Stuttgart more than 100 years ago. The company went on to take over other German manufacturers of forks (such as Victoria), spades and other implements. Over 100 million forks, spades, hoes and rakes delivered to satisfied customers around the world are impressive proof of the efficiency and performance of our factories. Over a period of decades, the companies concentrated on what they did best - as absolute specialists. One of the characteristic features of the company was its product variety. The target groups which for years set the stringent standards for our production were professional users such as farmers, vintners, fruit growers, plant nurseries, landscape gardeners, road builders and so on. All of these discerning experts had their own specific demands which all had to be taken into account during product development.

   
1991: Our history has a future
 

Our history has a futureSince the beginning of 2002, FREUND VICTORIA has been a member of the JOHANN OFFNER Group of Companies in Austria. This connection has created one of the highest performing manufacturing groups for long-handled implements in Europe. Offner operates one of the world's most modern fork production plants. Following the merger, the production volume amounts to around 3.5 million implements per year. For FREUND VICTORIA, this marks a further milestone in the company's development. The innovative drive and flexibility of this medium-sized company has been retained and will form a basis for future compliance with the demands of the market and the needs of our customers. The opportunities created by the merger, particularly in the field of manufacturing, will secure our international competitive standing.
