In 1742, Tradinghouse Volderauer was established by a group of local blacksmiths living and working in the Stubai Valley. These master craftsmen later founded the Stubai Tooling Corporation in 1897. Even though the company can only trace its beginnings to the mid 1700's, the Stubay Valley has a long and rich history of blacksmiths dating back to the 14th century.
