The beginning of the success story of Gera Montagen dates back to 1992 when Helmut Raggam, together with a partner, established a specialized company for fitting and installation of high-quality joinery products in Seiersberg near Graz, Austria. Since then the company gained fame far beyond the borders of Austria. Today, it is run by its founder Helmut Raggam as sole executive director.
The first employees were recruited in 1992. Some of them are still loyal to the company and have since then strongly contributed to its successful development by their professional skills and readiness for action.
In 1993 the first project outside Austria – the assembling and fitting-out of rooms in the Maritim hotel in Stuttgart, Germany – has been executed by the professionals of Gera Montagen to the highest satisfaction of the client.
Due to the excellent order backlog and the subsequent increase of manpower the company base was relocated from Seiersberg to Mettersdorf am Saßbach in Southern Styria.
In 2000 the company was awarded the “Archduke Johann Gold Medal” by the Styrian Chamber of Commerce for outstanding performance.
During the same year the company expanded its activities into the area of interior fit-out of ships and luxury yachts. The first contract in this field concerned a project for „Superfast Ferry“ in Denmark.
By 2003 Gera Montagen has become an internationally renowned brand for its excellence in assembling and installation of joinery products. Its staff already exceeded 90 highly professional experts that executed projects inside and outside Europe in places such as New York, Miami and Rabat.
In 2010 the newly built office in Mettersdorf am Saßbach has been solemnly inaugurated.
The management of the company has occupied the second place in the category “Sustainable Growth and Solid Financial Basis” in the competition „Austrian Leading Companies“. The award has been presented in the Viennese Hofburg.
Helmut Raggam: „Backed by our highly qualified and flexible professionals our focus is on meeting deadlines, highest execution quality and customer satisfaction. In the area of construction, as well as in the shipping and yacht sector numerous well-known clients in Austria and abroad are among our regular customers.”
