The company Stepan was founded in 1968 by Mr. Walter Stepan and his wife Elisabeth. Already at that time the company specialized in the trade with machines and materials. At that time, the main focus of activity was the construction of transformers and electric motors.

The sales area included Austria as well as the neighboring Eastern European countries. In the mid-1980s, the son of the company’s founders, Klaus Stepan, joined the company and concentrated on a new business area: the production of printed circuit boards. In the mid-90s, the label printing industry was added as a further mainstay. Shortly thereafter, partnerships were established with a number of producers in the electronics industry, and since 2017, the Intralogistics 4.0 division has rounded out Stepan GmbH’s portfolio.

Klaus Stepan, Stefan Kessler and Andreas Höfner have been managing the company very successfully for many years. Stepan GmbH has one subsidiary each in Germany and Serbia, as well as sales employees responsible for Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.
