Trodat has devoted itself with passion to stamp production for 100 years. The story of a passion with far-reaching results.
1912 PIONIEERING DAYS
Franz Just and his wife boil stamp inks on the kitchen stove in Vienna and poured them into glass bottles. Active business travel soon shows success. The business flourishes. The first relocation to a new, larger headquarters in Vienna occurs in 1927.
1947 NEW BEGINNINGS
Confidence in the Austrian shilling was low immediately after the war and the economic miracle still far off. Nonetheless Walter Just is already thinking ahead. He secures land for the business‘s relocation from Vienna to Wels and successfully acquires ERP loans under the Marshall Plan.
1960 SUCCESSFUL PATENT
A name becomes a product range. The brand name ‘Trodat‘ is registered. The products are so successful that they replace the company‘s previous name in 1968.
1976 STAMP REVOLUTION
