Latest production year confirms record levels for Demaclenko

While others are making the most of the summer and the hot weather, Demaclenko is working hard to ensure that the next winter season is a success.

The order situation has continued to develop very well this year too, meaning that our expectations were exceeded by some margin: Whereas only around 1,000 propeller machines and the same number of lances were sold in 2015, the level will be significantly higher at the end of this year. 

Demaclenko has been able to further strengthen its position in the world market and build fully on the success of last year thanks to its sales activity and the target-oriented approach taken by its project managers. Together, Demaclenko’s employees have enabled the company to grow into a strong and trustworthy partner in the snowmaking industry.

So that our customers can start the new season on time, production is already in full swing, ensuring that the systems can be brought into operation on schedule. In order to optimize the implementation process, the company is focusing on its two production sites in Selva di Val Gardena and Telfs: While most propeller machines are manufactured in Tyrol, Selva di Val Gardena is concentrating on producing the numerous lances, the various custom and system engineering, researching and developing new, pioneering innovations. The new site in Austria is playing a key role for Demaclenko, combining technical core competencies with key main components to help conquer the global market. Demaclenko’s field of activity has thus focused increasingly on production in Tyrol, the hub for our main market. The new site in Austria allows Demaclenko to meet its customers’ needs in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Central Europe in a timely and efficient manner.

As well as quality and performance, this is another reason as to why the world’s leading ski resorts are further consolidating their partnership with Demaclenko this year. For instance, the Demaclenko team in Austria has secured new, very prestigious orders from Kitzbühel, Flachau, Silvretta Montafon, Silvretta Ischgl, Fieberbrunn, the Schultz Group and many more. However, our positive figures do not just come from Austria at present: internationally renowned ski resorts such as Hafjell (NO), Trysil, Sälen, Chamonix and Praz de Lyz have also put their trust in the expertise of the snowmaking professionals. China is also adding an army of blue snow guns to its ski resorts to best prepare them for 2022.

Installing snow guns on the Saslong World Cup slope, and the snowmaking system project in San Martino di Castrozza are important new additions in Italy. We also succeeded in equipping the Racines ski resort with our products for the first time. This achievement is not least due to the positive synergies generated with our sister company LEITNER ropeways, which installed Italy’s first 8-seater chair lift in Racines in 2016. Another milestone was delivering snow guns for the first time to all three Kronplatz companies at the same time: In Brunico, Valdaora and San Vigilio the latest generation Demaclenko models ensure perfect snow conditions from fall onward.

Demaclenko has thus managed to achieve steady growth, reaching an unprecedented size thanks to an extremely positive performance.
