Comfort mats for
In 1968, the KRAIBURG Group takes over the company "Wöhl" and founds the Gummiwerk KRAIBURG Elastik GmbH in Tittmoning.
Company founder Peter Schmidt had the vision of a new recycling procedure: to process the high-quality raw material resulting from tyre retreading into products.
With a staff of 10 employees and three small production units the production of elastic slabs starts.
With the start of the new production unit "Press 4" (with 5 floors), the economic volume production begins.
The new production unit "Press 9" with more than 600,000 m² (= 100 soccer fields) production capacity per years gets started.
→ thus, KRAIBURG is ahead of many other manufacturers in the business regarding price and quality
"Press 9" stands in this newly built hall

Our representative for Eastern Germany "Stalltechnik Fachhandels GmbH, Dipl.-Ing. Falko Obenaus" is founded.
This is the first production unit where thicker mats with more details can be produced (edge, slope, ...).
→ Thereby we move away from the very simple mats.
This is the first lying mat of the new generation:

Instead of mineral plasticizer oils, we now use vegetable oils from European cultivation.
We have been the first company to pass the DLG quality audit with flying colours. Both the entire production process and the environmental compatibility (PAH harmless) will now continue to be tested regularly.
With slope, softness and grip -> for dry claws
To be compliant with the new DIN 3763, products must meet certain standards regarding durability (e.g. abrasion resistance) and animal welfare (e.g. slip resistance). All our products meet these standards.
After 21 years of service, over 4 million square metres and 15,000 km of cutting performance, we are saying goodbye to our waterjet cutting unit "WSA 1" into its well-deserved retirement. When it started in 2000, it heralded a completely new era in production technology for us: for the first time, we were able to customize our mats for slatted floors individually and customer-specifically.
Today, we have 6 of these waterjet cutting units, and the "WSA 7" is being launched to replace the number 1.
