Quality for Generations
THE KLAPSCH FAMILY HAS BEEN WORKING WITH POSCH MACHINES FOR FOUR GENERATIONS NOW
Josef Klapsch took over an agricultural enterprise from his father, and part of the business has always been the sale of firewood. The Klapsch family bought their first POSCH machine, a Schälboy, as early as in the early sixties.
“At first, we did the husking by hand, and then we decided that this method of husking was not efficient“, as Josef Klapsch remembers.
THE HELD FAMILY PURCHASED A SCHÄLBOY AND SO JOINED THE FAITHFUL SQUAD OF POSCH CUSTOMERS
Aloisia Held’s first machine made by POSCH was also a Sch.lboy. Since we could not find any people to do the “maize husking” any more, it made work much easier.
“We still have the machine, but we don’t use it any more, because we do not grown maize any more“, so the 75-year-old woman, whose family operates a wine tavern and grows wine.
As a result of their focus on guest rooms, the Held family required an increasingly larger volume of firewood. ”
The wood splitter Maxi let us get our work done faster, and the HydroCombi enabled us to split fibrous wood as well. Then we bought a roller bench saw six years ago.
SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE FOR DECADES
As far as Josef Klapsch is concerned, he decided to buy a POSCH table saw and later a tilting saw after a work accident with another machine that cost him one finger.
“I wanted to buy a reliable machine. Even back then, POSCH offered the safest products of the best quality, and the machines still work perfectly! Meanwhile, we have several POSCH machines, and HydroCombis are used by a collective of about ten people in the village today. However, it is not only the machine performance that makes POSCH special, but also the fact that the machines are produced in Austria and that you can rely on their service and advice.”
This is also the point of view of Aloisia Held and her son-in-law Hermann:
“The products from POSCH are very robust, powerful and safe, and the splitting data are correct. Furthermore, we wanted to buy from a regional supplier. If another machine breaks, you have to scrap it. POSCH offers a reliable service and the machines are durable.“
Josef Klapsch’s daughter and son-in-law and his grandson Sebastian run the agricultural business in the fourth generation now.
In addition to Aloisia Held’s husband (in the picture), her daughter Josefine, her son-in-law Helmut and their two sons also pitch in on the farm.
