Franz Zambelli lays the foundation stone of today's Zambelli Group at the end of the 1950s: carrying just the bare necessities, he arrives on his motorbike in the tranquil Grafenau district of Haus im Wald in Lower Bavaria, where he has been commissioned to renovate the church tower. Meeting his wife Ursula was the decisive reason for him to settle in Haus im Wald once the assignment was complete.
With great diligence and tireless innovation, Franz and his brother Carlo develop products with a unique selling proposition. This inventiveness has since been rewarded with numerous Zambelli patents and industrial property rights.
The innovative spirit of our company founder continues to inspire our actions and drive to continuously develop roof drainage ideas, even today.
We are tirelessly developing our products, driving our visions in meaningful directions and working on practical and beneficial solutions.

We are deeply rooted in the trade and possess sound technical knowledge, shaped by decades of practical experience. We are determined to keep building on this and trust rigorously in modern standards and technological advancements. Many of our production processes are fully automated and draw on machine learning. We maintain modern toolmaking facilities and automation departments at our locations to create space for innovation and put ideas into practice.
We are now numbered among the leading market suppliers of roof drainage due to the daily commitment and performance of our employees in development, production, order processing and logistics. With their know-how, our employees are committed to the continuous improvement of our products; and their competence guarantees seamless job fulfilment. We are proud to be an established family business.
