The company

For decades, Lukschal GmbH has been a reliable partner for all areas involving the protection of people through specially adapted clothing.

Over the years, the family-owned company, now in its 3rd generation, has developed into a highly competent problem solver in the field of occupational safety clothing.

Some milesones

  • Our company was originally founded around 1935 in Neuhaus – today Jindřichův Hradec – in what was then Czechoslovakia by Martin Lukschal.
  • As a Sudeten German, however, Lukschal had to leave Czechoslovakia and founded a company with his later wife Eleonora Hanaschek in the turmoil of the post-war years, which was then called Luhana. The company headquarters changed several times: from Vienna, to Weitra and Bischofshofen.
  • Initially, the company produced fashion goods such as pullovers, jackets and the like, but later the business shifted to fashionable gloves and later still to work protection.
  • In 1962, the company moved to its present location.
  • In 1982 the company was renamed “E & M Lukschal Strick und Knitwear”. Peter Lukschal took over the business from his father.
  • In 2008, the company was expanded and enlarged.
  • In 2013, the company invested in new circular knitting machines.
  • In 2014 Eva Lukschal took over the management of the company.
