Company History


Brothers Jožef and Tomaž Schwarzmann established Rastlinjaki Schwarzmann d.o.o., a company which started operating in February 1994 with just two employees out of a simple home garage. In 1994, they built a workshop for pipe-bending and making greenhouse components next to their home. Most of the construction work was carried out by Jožef and Tomaž themselves.


Their home workshop soon became too small, and both production and the offices moved to newly rented premises at the Litostroj company in Ljubljana.


Their team now consisted of 10 employees.


They purchased a plot of land in Polhov Gradec and erected a production hall covering a total of 1,200 m2 of production and office space. In August 2000, their entire production and management moved into their very own, newly-built premises in Polhov Gradec. The production hall was where the bending and cutting of pipes, welding of structural components and cutting of foil took place.


Between 2000 and 2005, the company’s production program encompassed small greenhouses for individuals, professional greenhouses for horticultural companies, greenhouses for garden centres and smaller industrial fabric structures. Thanks to the high demand for PVC-coated steel structures, the company focused on expanding their range of industrial or storage tents. Due to changes in their production program, the company name was changed to Konstrukcije Schwarzmann d.o.o..


The company M-Schwarzmann d.o.o. was established to take over their sales, design and administration operations.


The Schwarzmann team now consisted of 45 employees.


Schwarzmann buildings and facilities were now present on 5 continents.


Schwarzmann received the Design Value Award as a partner company at the Competence Centre for Design Management (2013–2015).


The production facilities in Slovenia were expanded to over 25,000 m2 in order to meet an increase in demand and rising sales.


The Austrian subsidiary Hallen Schwarzmann GmbH was established with business premises in Graz. At this point, Austria has been the company’s largest foreign market for many years.


The Schwarzmann brand celebrated its 25th birthday.


The company name changed to Schwarzmann d.o.o..


The company was nominated for the Slovenian Gazelle award, ranking among the three fastest growing companies in the Central Slovenia statistical region.


More than 2,100 buildings have now been designed and erected by Schwarzmann.
