About us

DEMACLENKO is one of the leading international companies for the realization of fully automatic snowmaking systems and guarantees punctual winter season starts worldwide.

We project, develop, produce and sell turnkey snowmaking systems and system components that are perfectly adapted to the individual customer needs and geographical requirements of the ski resorts. A professional after-sales service - from commissioning of the system to maintenance and emergency service during peak seasons - completes our portfolio.

The particular focus of our development work is on the economic efficiency and sustainability of technical snowmaking, as well as on snowmaking operations that are as resource-efficient as possible.


DEMACLENKO was born in 2011 from the fusion of the two companies Demac (Val Gardena/Italy) and Lenko (Sweden). The challenge was to combine the strengths and knowledge of the two different companies while respecting the long traditions that led both brands to success.

The fusion was followed by a start-up phase in which DEMACLENKO has very quickly become the second main player in the snowmaking sector, particularly successful in the traditional markets of DACH countries, Italy, France and Scandinavia. For some years now, DEMACLENKO has also been in a strong internationalization phase and is establishing itself more and more in Central and Eastern Europe, North and South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand - also due to newly founded subsidiaries.
