KLINGER Making hostory

A success story based on innovation, reliability and dedication to quality.
KLINGER is a leading company in sealing, fluid control and system monitoring. In the year 1886 Richard Klinger opened a small laboratory in Vienna and only four years later he invented the reflex level indicator still known today all over the world and produced by the Italian branch. In 1893 the Gumpoldskirchen plant was put into operation, which is now fully operational. In the early 1900s we saw the creation of Klingerit®, the revolutionary gasket material in calendered compressed fiber, an oil-resistant jointing material with metal mesh. Production development also leads to the expansion of production sites and the construction of a European distribution network. Over the years, the innovative and research activity continues and there is the development of PTFE sealing materials and the introduction of KLINGERsil®, the first asbestos-free joint material in the world, in addition to the production of large scale ball valves Industrial – KLINGER Ballostar® and the introduction of a revolutionary sealing material for high temperatures, KLINGER® Quantum. With the opening of branches all over the world and strategic acquisitions in target segments, today we offer the best performance and the highest quality thanks to our passion for excellence: yesterday, today and tomorrow.
