The company Stela

About us

Stela can look back on many years of tradition and experience.

In 1922 Stefan Laxhuber founded a small workshop, which together with his wife Juliane Laxhuber he turned into a company for wind-powered well production, and later expanded to trading agricultural machinery.
After 50 successful years, the founder passed the company on to his son, Stefan Laxhuber. With the support of his wife, Theresia Laxhuber, he devoted many years to his life’s work, as his father had done before him. And like his father, he also opened new lines of business, from which the core product developed: drying technology.

Today, stela is managed by the third generation of the family, represented by Thomas Laxhuber and Rainer Hettwer.

And it continues to focus on its main area of business: drying.

The company continues to grow. In 2016, the company moved into new administration and production buildings. There is space for over 200 employees across more than 67,000 m².

We were named Top Company in Lower Bavaria in 2017 and 2018.

In addition, Stela was selected as the winner of the Bavarian Medium-Sized Business Award 2021/2022. In the same year, Stela celebrated its 100th anniversary.
