APV stands for AMBITION. PASSION. VISION.
In line with this motto, the company from Dallein (Lower Austria) was established to make a valuable contribution to sustainably improving the quality of life and conserving resources with innovative agricultural technology products.
We develop environmentally friendly and resource-saving machines for agriculture and attach great importance to quality, usability and reliable and fast service in order to sustainably inspire our customers.
We have set ourselves the goal of doing everything we can to make the world a little bit better. We achieve this by developing modern agricultural technology solutions for sustainable agriculture.
When Jürgen Schöls founded the company APV-Technische Produkte GmbH in Dallein (Lower Austria) in 1997, it was a one-man operation. Together with Birgit Schöls, who joined the company at the end of 1998, the focus was on expansion.
In 2010, there were already 25 people and today (2022) 150 employees work for APV in Austria and abroad. Appreciative cooperation has been close to the heart of the owners from the very beginning and is therefore a living corporate culture, whether with employees, customers or partners.
The company produces green care, crop care, spreading and seeding equipment for organic use in the fields. Not only organic farmers, but also more and more conventional farms trust APV's products for the efficient and sustainable cultivation of their fields. With an export quota of almost 85%, APV can definitely be called the "hidden champion" of the Waldviertel (part of Lower Austria).
There are APV locations and sales subsidiaries in Poland, Romania, Russia, Germany, Turkey and the USA. The network of APV contractual partners in over 50 countries ensures the highest level of service competence for APV customers worldwide.

APV attaches great importance to respectful interaction with one another. The following values are paramount and shape the company:
Sustainability, togetherness, trust, enthusiasm, responsibility and respect.
We live sustainability: We rely 100% on renewable energy at our main location in Lower Austria. A wood chip heating plant provides heat from renewable raw materials and also supplies the drying plant, which is used to dry corn, grain and pumpkin seeds.
On the roofs there are huge photovoltaic systems for the production of electricity, which saves a large part of CO² emissions. On our entire premises we also offer numerous charging stations for the electric cars of our fleet as well as those of our employees.
For example, we make sure that our printed advertising materials such as brochures, price lists, and flyers are limited in number, adapted to the actual need without producing unnecessary surplus. In addition, we print almost entirely on ecologically sustainable or recycled paper and also pay attention to the actual necessity and renewable or resource-saving materials for our other advertising materials.
MORE THAN JUST PRODUCTS
Born out of the need for efficient machinery in organic farming, we have steadily expanded our product portfolio for diverse areas in both organic and conventional agriculture. We are a specialist and one of the world's leading companies in the field of pneumatic seeding and spreading technology, offering user-friendly, precise and innovative equipment for the following applications:
