1936 The first chapter in the history of the Austrian family-owned business headquartered in Krems an der Donau (Lower Austria) begins when Walter Brantner senior (born in 1910) founds a taxi company followed by a travel agency and bus company.

1960 His son, Walter Brantner junior (born in 1940), joins the family business and begins to continuously build up both a national and international transport company.

1976 Walter Brantner junior establishes the business units waste management and municipal services. The first services are offered to the first municipalities in (Lower) Austria.
