The company Minka

Minka is one of the largest staircase manufacturers in the world. Every year we sell around 140,000 staircases in over 50 countries. Find out here how it all came about, who stands behind our company and what values we represent.

About us

“Flexible design. Sustainable use.” – true to this motto, Minka has been producing stairs in the heart of Austria since 1952. While the focus was initially primarily on the production of attic stairs, in recent decades the production of system staircases has also grown steadily. This has enabled us to build up an extensive product range: From highly insulated and fire-retardant loft stairs to space-saving and spiral staircases to galvanised outdoor stairs and child safety doors. Over the past 70 years, we have established ourselves in the national and international staircase market and are now one of the largest staircase manufacturers in the world.

With the help of our state-of-the-art production facilities and in-house powder coating department, we are able to flexibly adapt our products to any requirements. The modular system of Minka system staircases allows customers to choose between different types of wood, metal colours, assembly variants and sizes. Thanks to the high quality standards, excellent insulation technology and the use of durable and low-wear materials, Minka stairs are extremely sustainable not only in production but also in use. Whether it’s a space-saving staircase, a spiral staircase or an attic staircase – you buy a Minka for life.

The history of Minka began with a man named Franz Janner. In 1952 he was building a house in Vorarlberg in Austria. In order to reach the attic in a better way, he developed his first loft ladder. This quickly developed into a business idea and the company Minka was founded.


We attach great importance to the sustainable production and use of our stairs. Thanks to the use of high-quality materials from Europe and our own photovoltaic systems, our products already have a very good ecological balance. But that’s not all: our goal is to produce 100% CO2-neutral.

Powder coating

With the branch of powder coating, Minka has built up a second business pillar. We not only add colour to the metal parts of our own staircases, but also to the products of various local business customers.


Minka is characterised by a large number of highly qualified employees who do their best every day. Whether in production or in administration – a strong team is the success factor for all our activities.
