Success in the execution of a project begins by us listening carefully to our clients in order to find out about their preferences and requirements. Drawing on our long years of experience we then assist our clients in executing their project and achieving all associated targets on time and within budget.


The origins of AT go back to the year 1982, when Hans-Joachim Gaede started to manufacture agricultural machinery and production facilities (seed processing and drying) for the production of corn, grain and oil-seeds. With the emergence of biofuels in the transport sector AT then began to change its business model. Since the year 1990 AT’s engineers have been pioneering new technologies for converting oils and fats into biodiesel.

A major milestone on the company’s new path was reached in 1992 when the first AT biodiesel plant was successfully commissioned in Austria.
