Our Heritage

In 1922, Stefan Laxhuber established STELA, starting as a modest workshop with aspirations of serving the agricultural machinery sector. Over the decades, STELA transformed. Guided initially by Stefan’s son and now propelled by the vision of the third generation, Thomas Laxhuber and Rainer Hettwer, the company pivoted to become a leader in drying technology.

Now in North America

Responding to the growing needs of the North American market, we’ve recently expanded our footprint with a new office in Atlanta. This strategic move allows us to be closer to U.S. business owners, offering tailored solutions and local expertise. With a century behind us, STELA’s commitment to innovation and global outreach remains stronger than ever.
