your technical test laboratory for connection and fastening technology



  AVVIO was founded in 1982 by Mr. Gerhard Hubmann, Sr. and Mrs. Linde Hubmann.

In the 1980s and 1990s, the focus of activities was on technological consultancy and the sales and marketing of fasteners in Austria and the neighboring countries.

Due to market requirements in the European area and the increased emergence of technical approvals for construction products, the technical testing of the products and monitoring of the manufacturing plants took on increasing importance. The opening of the global procurement market went hand in hand with the necessity for strict quality controls for products from Asia. In order to supply sustainable, continuous quality, AVVIO – alongside consultancy and sales – expanded its activities to the physical testing of wood building screws.

Based on the contractually-agreed collaboration concluded with Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in 2006, manufacturer audits were carried out in Asia. Product testing was performed at regular intervals in Austria.

In 2015, a total of over 18,000 test reports were issued to various customers all over Europe as part of quality assurance. Cooperation projects and excellent general collaboration with renowned technical institutes and testing laboratories as well as technical universities have developed over the years.

Building on the activities of the last few decades, AVVIO has also become an important partner for industry and commerce in the areas of research and development. The activities in these fields led to newly designed services (app), patent applications and brand developments.
