Everything started in Gmunden – Schörihub. From here the pioneer of ice cream machines and dispensing equipment started to conquer Austria and following the presentation at the International Refrigeration Engineering Exhibition, expanded into Europe. Growth followed development and vice versa, – until full capacity was reached and thus AKE was founded in 1998. Since then, they have shaped refrigeration and heating engineering – even in the American market.
In 2012 IDEAL and AKE combined their strength in development, distribution and marketing under one umbrella brand and set a milestone in customer focus and service quality.
