- Firma Tropper was founded as a mill construction company in 1938. Company head office was a former contract mill.
- In 1993, the first mobile grinding and mixing plant with the original Suction-Pressure System was presented to the public. Important features of this plant are dust-free operation, low feed hopper, electronic mixer weighing without locking, and complete discharge.
- This innovative idea was awarded for 'Noteworthy Development' at the Agritechnica in 1995.
- In 1998, the construction of the first wood pellets silo vehicles with weighing system started.
- In 2001, Mag. Johannes Tropper as Managing Director took over, along with his three brothers, the reins of the successful company.
- In 2004, Tropper developed its own 'On Board Weighing System' for the purpose of weighing transported goods on the transporting vehicle.
- In 2005, the next great milestone followed: the MEGA MIX – a mobile grinding/mixing plant with a 12-ton mixer was developed, patented and presented amid much acclaim at Agritechnica in Hannover.
- In 2006, Tropper was approved for the Calibration License and can now carries out calibrations in Class III and IV themselves.
- The design department has been supported by a high performance CAD program since 2006.
- In 2007, the latest MEGA MIX Duo with partition was presented at Agritechnica in Hannover. With this system, two different mixtures can be produced in only one grinding process.
