Steiner is celebrating its centenary under the tagline "Taking the lead together"

Established in 1915 as a one-man joinery shop, the company has become one of the country's leading developers and general contracting companies over the course of three generations.

After Hindustan Construction Company Ltd. (HCC) acquired a majority interest in Steiner in 2010, Steiner Group continues with the same high degree of reliability and competence that Steiner has always offered as a partner in addressing the full spectrum of real estate development and total contractor services.

Steiner AG celebrated its centenary in 2015 and has taken this as an opportunity to launch a microsite. This site offers exciting insights into the company's eventful history.
