PALFINGER’s Feeling for Snow

Partnership with ÖSV

Be it Nordic Combined, Alpine Skiing, or Ski Flying – the partnership between PALFINGER and the Austrian Ski Federation (ÖSV) has always encapsulated tradition and success. PALFINGER as a long-standing and innovative partner of ÖSV: a cooperation that will be strengthened in the future.

2021 is no exception. The “Nordic Combined Triple” was already successfully held in Seefeld at the end of January. The speed competitions in Saalbach-Hinterglemm also proved to be a genuine spectacle. Both events enjoyed significant backing from PALFINGER.

Think Global, Act Local

“Our partnership with ÖSV is long-term in nature. Such a collaboration can only be upheld if you look beyond the obvious and focus on the maximum benefit for both partners,” says PALFINGER CEO Andreas Klauser, alluding to the World Cup event in Saalbach. “This also entails not forgetting our regional roots despite our international alignment. The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup in Saalbach-Hinterglemm is an excellent example. During the media event, we support both Salzburg talents and local customers such as Bergbahnen Saalbach/Hinterglemm.”

Celebrating Success, Promoting Talent

Striving for top performance is a mindset that unites ÖSV and PALFINGER. This was recently underlined by the outstanding performances of ÖSV athletes at the Alpine and Nordic World Ski Championships. With young cross-country skier Barbara Walchhofer and skier Elisabeth Reisinger, PALFINGER also boasts two up-and-coming athletes with enormous potential on its list of exclusive partners.

Shared Passion, Double Success

Shared philosophies create a bond, which is precisely why PALFINGER and ÖSV enjoy such a successful partnership. Both have managed to remain firmly grounded while epitomising excellence and outstanding achievements for years. This grounding not only ensures stability, but also the required agility to react flexibly, quickly, and successfully to new challenges. This applies to PALFINGER lifting solutions and ÖSV records alike.

PALFINGER and ÖSV are united by an unconditional will to succeed, but there is more to the partnership than that. The dedication of every single ÖSV athlete and PALFINGER employee to embracing these great goals is just as important. Without them, there would be no special moments of celebration, which are the lifeblood of this connection. Moments in which PALFINGER shares the spotlight as a strong brand and reliable partner.
