The TYROLIA Company, located in Schwechat, Austria, and founded in 1847 as “Wiener Metallwaren-, Schnallen-, und Maschinenfabrik GmbH”, manufactured its first ski binding in 1928. Ten years later industrial production started and in 1949 the first TYROLIA-branded ski binding was produced. Continued advances in research and development, unparalleled performance and high-quality service guarantee a high-tech product renowned throughout the entire winter sports industry.

Today, TYROLIA has secured a strong leadership position with numerous awards in World Cup Racing and the growing freeski segment. One out of every three bindings sold internationally is designed, developed and mounted by TYROLIA. Exporting 90 percent of its production, TYROLIA delivers its bindings to subsidiaries and dealers worldwide.

Our Vision


TYROLIA offers „Made in Austria“ ski bindings for every type of skier, terrain and skiing performance. Bindings ranging from Competition, Racing, Piste & All Mountain, Freeski and Touring, Junior to Rental provide access to all the skiing areas of a mountain. Thanks to the confidence afforded by a reliable product, go out and enjoy skiing or alpine touring experiences by gaining access to all areas!

Our Mission


From the very beginning, we have been driven by a deep burning passion for skiing. Our aim has always been to build the world‘s best bindings in terms of quality, safety, and technical perfection. More importantly, for over 90 years we have been submitting our bindings to a process of continuous improvement. The genuine obsession that lies at the core of TYROLIA‘S mission, inspiring relentless innovation is a truly contagious passion that we share with the athletes on team TYROLIA, our own TYROLIA employees, and all other passionate skiers. For us, a binding is more than a connector between a ski and a ski boot, it‘s the essential link between athlete and skis, enabling the skier to become one with the gear and perform at the highest level.

TYROLIA responds as rapidly as possible to the needs of the market and its customers, enabled by a wide vertical range of manufacturing processes and a faster time-to-market in its development of new products.
