History

ATAIR GROUP History Timeline

ATAIR was founded in 1986 as an exclusively family-owned enterprise. Our company management still lives and acts according to the values that characterise an ideal family: trust, respect, honesty, reliability, fairness and common spirit. Independent of a family tree, we are and will remain one big family. We value our close, collaborative dealings with our employees, suppliers and customers.

Our management team comprises five members with various areas of competence. We think in terms of flat hierarchies and work together with great team spirit to achieve ATAIR’s business, societal, social and ecological goals. This involves a high degree of willingness to innovate and change.
