History

Spitzer Silo
The pioneer among dry bulk tanker manufacturers

The Spitzer Group looks back to a long tradition. The family owned company was founded in 1872 by Johann Spitzer and in its early years specialised in the manufacturing and sale of agricultural products.

An important milestone in the company’s history was 1950. Through the development and manufacture of the first dry bulk tanker for the transport of cement and soda, the long-established company has been seen as a pioneer in the production of the aluminium vessels for dry bulk tankers. Since the end of the 60s, Spitzer has been concentrating on the production of dry bulk tankers and has been constantly improving their products.

Today, the group operates on an international level and is one of the leading manufacturers of dry bulk tankers and truck-mounted units.
When it comes to designing and producing customer-oriented trucks, Spitzer has a very extensive range of know-how at its disposal, which it has built up over many years. Indeed, Spitzer was a pioneer in this particular segment – the first dry bulk tanker that ever came on the market bore the name of Spitzer.
