About us

The headquarters of Praher Plastics Austria GmbH is situated in the peaceful and contemplative village of Schwertberg, in the Mühlviertel, in the plain between the Danube river and the beginning rolling hills of the Mühlviertel. This is exactly where Ludwig Praher founded the company in 1971 as one-man operation producing technical plastics and plastic injection moulds for the production of the parts.

Today, the company produces high-quality valves and fittings for industrial piping systems and the pool industry and realizes customized functional parts and assemblies on fully automated injection moulding machines. The in-house research and development department cooperates closely with universities and research institutes. New ideas are first implemented in the heart of the company: the mould making department and increasingly with three-dimensional printing techniques. Our centralized procurement system ensures continuous supply with high-quality raw materials. Fully-automated robot systems, developed in-company, explore new avenues in the production of quality plastic valves. The company is now managed in second generation by Winfried Praher together with Rainer Pühringer.

A second production site is located in Barrie/Canada. Founded in 1986, today, the site manufactures especially for the requirements of the North-American market and essentially controls the sales activities for this market.

In some core markets, as Germany, Czech Republic and Middle East, we are represented by autonomous branches. Under the independent company name Peraplas, these branches offer close service including warehousing and logistics.

We supply worldwide and in many countries we trust in close cooperation with our qualified trading partners. Please get in contact with our sales team at the headquarters.
