The founder

Josef Schmidhammer was born into a farming family on the 1st May 1925, in Riffian, South Tyrol, Italy. In 1939 the family resettled in Lüdenscheid, Westphalia, Germany, where Mr Schmidhammer began his apprenticeship as a plumber in a German company. In the post-war years he returned home and in 1953, after working for a short period in a South Tyrolean plumbing business, he founded the company Schmidhammer Ltd. Their own need for ventilation units was ultimately the decisive factor in laying the foundations for the company Euroclima in 1963.
