When Oskar Pirlo founded a small production facility for tin cans in Kufstein over 100 years ago, he surely would not have imagined how the company would ultimately develop in the decades that followed. Thanks to the participation of Oskar Pirlo’s uncle Julius Lüthi, the yet young company was able to expand considerably shortly after it was founded. By 1912, Pirlo already employed a workforce of 400 people. Skilful management, well-considered investments and steady growth have turned Pirlo into a healthy company, which is ready to cope with the challenges of the coming years in every respect.
