The Wienerberger Story

In 1819, Wienerberger was born. Since then, we have been shaping the future with innovative products and processes. Any good examples? In 1860, we installed the first round kiln; in the 1990s we established the plane brick; and, after the turn of the millennium, we simplified bricklaying with our Dryfix adhesive system.

Today, our vision is to be the most prestigious building materials and infrastructure solutions manufacturer and the employer of choice in our markets. We are a market leader in Smart Solutions and a pioneer of digitalization. Learn more about Wienerberger’s success story.
