History

MÜHLHÄUSER  has been founded in 1907 by three brothers and is still operated by the same family in the fourth generation. Today the name "MÜHLHÄUSER" is synonymous for tailor made logistic solutions for the world of tunnelling and mines.

The story of our company begins with the construction of the first side discharger muck car – made of wood and steel. Throughout European road, railway and water tunnelling projects, right up to global projects MÜHLHÄUSER develops solutions according to the needs of large tunnelling sites and mines around the world.

Karl-Heinz Mühlhäuser, who became the sole owner in 1941 has led the growth for European projects till the 1960s, laying the foundation for the following globalization of the business by his son, Heinz-Peter Mühlhäuser.

Heinz-Peter has led the company for nearly 50 years as Managing Partner. In 2013 he handed over the shares of the company to his son Hubertus Mühlhäuser, who is today the sole owner of the business, after also acquiring the remaining shares from his uncle and cousin.
