The Rosensteiner company in Waldneukirchen in Upper Austria is one of the leading companies in the field of hoof trimming crushes and versatile transport equipment - the Rosensteiner three-point buckets - and this far beyond our own borders.

The driving force behind this success is the extensive development work in cooperation with international scientists and specialists. From its foundation in 1982, this is what has enabled the company to become what it stands for today:

  • Market leader for hoof trimming crushes in the German-speaking world
  • A comprehensive distribution network throughout Europe and Russia
  • Leading innovator in animal care
  • Cooperating with a network of recognised institutes and medical practitioners
  • Multiple award-winning product design
  • Occupying a unique segment in the field of transport buckets with the three-point buckets.

The driving force for the international breakthrough is motivated employees, precise and qualitative manufacturing processes as well as competently trained sales partners paired with traditional inventive talent from our "Pyhrn-Eisenwurzen" region.
