The company Steyr-Daimler-Puch was founded as Josef and Franz Werndl Company in 1864 as a rifle manufacturer, but became known as Steyr-Werke AG in 1924.

The company began producing bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles, automobiles, tractors, trucks and buses.

Its early years were dominated by three big names – Steyr, Daimler and Puch (merged with Puch and Austro-Daimler to form Steyr-Daimler-Puch), which formed the Austrian roots of MAGNA.

When you take a historical look at MAGNA in Austria, you can see that we have been consistently delivering satisfaction to our customers for the last 100 years by engineering and assembling vehicles to the highest technical standards.

Engineering Center Steyr was borne out of more than 100 years of experience in R&D and production in the areas of vehicle, engine and drivetrain.

We certainly can look back on an exciting history and we know that our strong heritage is the base for our innovative solutions for tomorrow.
