The company history of Zettelmeyer
The company was founded in Konz near Trier on the Moselle in 1897. In the beginning, tractors were manufactured. At the beginning of the 1950s, steam-powered road rollers were manufactured. The production of the first high-loaders followed later. In 1968 Zettelmeyer produced the broadest range of skid steer loaders from a German manufacturer.
In 1975 Zettelmeyer was sold to the IBH Group and at the same time the product range was significantly expanded. The ZL 1501, ZL 1701, ZL 1801 wheel loaders and the wheel dozers, which were sold in large numbers to Iraq and the Bundeswehr, were particularly successful.
After the IBH Group filed for bankruptcy, the company’s owners changed frequently. The company most recently belonged to the W. Eder family, owners of the Eder Maschinenfabrik in Mainburg (Donau). This company mainly produced wheel excavators for the Caterpillar company with Caterpillar engines (see also Eder family takes over Atlas Gmbh, Ganderkesee).
In 1990/1991 the VOLVO Group – VOLVO Baumaschinen – took over the former Zettelmeyer company. The Zettelmeyer wheel loaders will then be sold as VOLVO compact loaders. At times, mini excavators of the Pel Job brand (France) were also produced by Zettelmeyer-VOLVO. The French company Pel Job was taken over by VOLVO Construction Equipment at the same time as Zettelmeyer and integrated into the VOLVO Group.
