In the video series "Roads to success" Hermann Maier visits Austrian companies. This time he visited Prangl.

Raiffeisen has been presenting the personal success stories of Austrian entrepreneurs for several years. Every month, extraordinary and innovative companies are brought to the stage.

This time, Hermann Maier's team were guests at Prangl. On the day, he was able to try his hand at driving a crane, went up in a 27-metre scissor lift and was able to steer a 10-axle heavy load module with a wing transport device.

International Top

Prangl has again been recognised as one of the top companies in the international crane and aerial work platform industry this year.

Each year, the globally renowned specialist publication "International Cranes" lists the biggest crane rental companies in the world. Coming in at 24th, Prangl is the only representative from Austria in the top 25. In a European context, this means an outstanding 6th place. The annual analysis by "Kran & Bühne" magazine uses different parameters to compile its ranking. However, the picture is very similar. Prangl is counted among the top 6 crane companies in the German-speaking world.

When it comes to the aerial work platform sector, the situation is similarly pleasing. By putting it in position no. 8, "Kran & Bühne" has once again recognised Prangl as belonging to the elite across Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The latter was also confirmed by the "Access International" trade publication. Every year, the world's largest aerial work platform rental companies are rated here. Coming in at 46th, we are the only representative from Austria in the International comparison.

Management System

The entire group of companies has successfully completed the second monitoring audit of our Integrated Management System (IMS).

For many years now, we have been committed to staying at the cutting edge in the disciplines of health, safety, environment and quality. In order to be able to document this accordingly, we are certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and SSCP.

The standard-compliant implementation of these regulations also includes regular audits by external experts. This time, the second monitoring audit included the locations in Poggersdorf, Premstätten and Vienna as well as the depot in Budapest.

This time, we were again lauded and recognised by the external auditor. The entire group of companies received an unrestricted certification according to all the aforementioned standards and for all locations at home and abroad. Through this continuous improvement process, the Prangl team has made a major contribution to further advancing our IMS maturity level.

Following Styria, a street in the federal capital is now also named after our company's founder Josef Prangl.

The streets of Vienna are historical documents. They bear witness not only to the history but also to the identity of the federal capital. Vienna's street names chronicle the character of the city and pay tribute to special people. The Culture Committee in Vienna City Hall decided to rename 16 streets. “An appreciative way to anchor personalities with outstanding merits in the public space and to commemorate them,” explains City Councillor for Culture Veronica Kaup-Hasler.

This honour has now also been bestowed on the founder of the Prangl Group, who died in 2014. With immediate effect, the new address of the company headquarters in Vienna Liesing is Josef-Prangl-Straße 8. Josef Prangl grew up in a small community in Styria. Before long, he gave up his job as a teacher and went to Vienna to be successful in business. He was a pioneer in the industry, a businessman with integrity. With a great deal of diligence, vision, courage and skill, he built up an internationally renowned industry player operating throughout Europe. “I am very proud of this recognition of my father's life's work,” says a delighted Christian Prangl, who has been successfully running the family business in its second generation.

AAA Validity

Excellent credit rating

Dun & Bradstreet is one of the leading providers of digital business information in Hungary and has many years of experience in granting certificates of creditworthiness. During a periodic audit, the creditworthiness of all Hungarian Prangl-companies has been rated as "AAA". This is the highest possible rating.

The excellent credit rating "AAA" represents the above-average financial strength of the company. Companies with this outstanding rating are distinguished by their above-average commercial performance.

The creditworthiness assessment is based on statistical models, which highlight the business capability of a company for the last three years and the current comparison period. This evaluates the security of business development in the coming months.

The certificate enables a company to be recognized as a trustworthy and reliable business partner and is used as a reference in business relationships with domestic and international business partners.

Prangl can use this abroad to demonstrate that it is one of the leading companies in this sector and that it can offer its customers reliable, long-term business capabilities.

AAA Validity


In cooperation with Statista, kununu and Xing, "trend" magazine presents its ranking of the 300 best employers in Austria in 2021.

The exclusive award is based on over 220,000 evaluations spanning 20 industries. A total of more than 1,300 domestic companies with at least 200 employees were surveyed.

Prangl participated for the first time and instantly made it into the rankings. In the "Transport and Logistics" category, the company fell just short of the top 10 and was ranked 13th. "This ranking is something we are proud of, because it stems directly from our employees. It proves that our new 'BePrangl' personnel development programme has been warmly received and is bearing fruit," Christian Prangl said with delight.

Prangl has been a successful family business for more than 55 years and is deeply committed to quality and community. The new headquarters in Vienna provides a pleasant working atmosphere and promotes solidarity. At the beginning of the pandemic, employees were immediately encouraged to work from home. In addition, the numerous fringe benefits foster a good working atmosphere.

Prangl in Sweden

After years of activity in the country, Prangl is now establishing its own company in Sweden.

Based on the positive experience of recent years, Prangl is expanding its Scandinavian business. With Prangl Sverige AB in Stockholm an independent sales company is being set up in the far north. The unit there is seen not only for the Swedish market but also as a hub for neighbouring countries such as Finland, Denmark or Norway. The main focus is on the construction of wind turbines. But projects from other areas will also be gladly implemented.

Great Start!

Prangl has been named a "Great Start!" company for apprentices for a second time in succession.

Our apprentices rated our company and our trainers in the fields of credibility, respect, fairness, pride and team spirit. We are delighted to have received the "Great Start!" accolade for the second time in a row since 2018.

A company that takes on apprentices is only distinguished with the Great Place to Work® award after a review of the feedback provided by its apprentices, as well as a presentation of its apprenticeship concept. This concept includes topics such as the recruitment process and the integration of new apprentices, or measures to promote cooperation and communication within the company. Only if a company satisfies the criteria for every topic is it considered to offer apprentices a "Great Start!".

"Our experiences with our apprentices have been extremely good to date. This accolade further underlines the value of our apprenticeship training," enthuses Jasmina Stojanovic, apprentice manager at Prangl.

Management and media experts listened online and conducted a study to identify Austria's sustainable companies.

A study conducted between 01/09/2019 and 31/08/2020 provided the data for the quality seal awarded to "Austria's Sustainable Companies". During the course of the study, it was possible to identify and assign over 1 million mentions of the roughly 1,800 best-known companies in Austria.

Data acquisition took place in two stages. The experts took into account topics such as ecological, economic and social sustainability, reputation, technology and innovation for the purpose of the study. It is not enough to stand out in one dimension alone. Each of the topics taken into consideration is significant to the evaluation of the overall sustainability performance.

Accolades were awarded to a total of 422 companies nationwide. Prangl is one of 159 award-winning companies in the "Service" category. Quality seal holders are considered to be sustainable companies in many respects. They live up to their social responsibility and therefore serve as role models.
