Our Success story

From the garage to an international company

From our beginning in the garage to the successful international company - much has changed since our foundation. However, the core values of our family business have remained the same: long-term partnerships with customers, suppliers and employees, innovation and Quality "Made in Austria".

The beginning in the garage

The company was founded in 1995 by Stefan Barbaric, who initially manufactured special vacuum lifters in his own garage. At that time, each lifting device was a one-off product - but even then, customers attached importance to a lightweight construction and a sophisticated design.


Move to the present location

Already in 1997, the company with 5 employees moves to its current location in the industrial quarter in Linz. Barbaric establishes itself as a special supplier of vacuum lifting devices and is recognized by customers throughout Austria and Germany.

New building with showroom

In 2003, a new company building was erected at the Linz site, which in addition to a production hall and a modern office also offers a showroom.

First automatic storage systems 

In 2004, the first automatic storage system was built for a customer in Austria. This point in our history marks the beginning of a rapid development of automatic handling systems at Barbaric.

Further development and international customers

The success of automatic handling systems has also led to increased international interest - and not only in Central Europe. In 2008, a Barbaric storage system was exhibited for the first time at the IWF in Atlanta (USA), whereupon the first customers from other continents also show great interest in our products.

Further expansion of main headquarter

The headquarter site in Linz was expanded again in 2015. With approx. 1500m² of new production space and an ultra-modern office building with 900m², the previous floor space is nearly tripled. A hall will also be set up as a showroom to give customers the opportunity to experience our products up close and in person.


Subsidiaries in Germany and the US

In order to improve service and communication with our customers and partners, 2018 sales offices are established in Germany and the USA.


New production facility in Eidenberg

Just 2 years after the last expansion at the Linz site, Barbaric is again reaching its limits in terms of space and is opening up a new production site, which more than doubles the current production area.

Our new production facility


Barbaric moves a part of the production - to the countryside! At the new production site near Linz, two more production halls were built in 2018. The site also offers ample room for future expansion and development.
