Proud Moment for Molnar & Stenhoj


In 2017, we proudly announce Molnar Hoists’ next level of evolution, as we become part of the Stenhøj Group.” Alexander Molnar

The Stenhøj Group will invest to grow the Molnar brand in Australia. The benefits of being a part of the Stenhøj Group will be the access to a greater range of innovative and market leading products. We will continue to invest in service and support, bringing our experience to ensure Molnar’s reputation in the Australian market is maintained. The Stenhøj Group philosophy is to build on a great reputation of equipment while ensuring products are supported locally.” Soren Madsen

Stenhøj Group CEO, Soren Madsen wanted to ensure a smooth transition of ownership with minimal disruption to customers so for him the involvement of the Molnar family was a key point. Managing Director Alexander Molnar along with Director and brother-in-law Kevin Dawes will continue to be heavily involved in the future of Molnar Hoists.

We will continue to support our existing products in the Australian market through stocking of spare parts, technical service and support. Investment in and commitment to the legacy of the Molnar name is what confirmed for Alexander Molnar that the Stenhøj Group was a suitable home for the Molnar brand.

The 2017 AAA Expo (6-8 April 2017) will mark the official public announcement of Molnar becoming a part of the Stenhøj Group and where we introduce our next generation Molnar 4 Post Hoist. This will also be a landmark year for the Stenhøj Group celebrating our 100-year Anniversary.

During the transition period, manufacturing will continue at our factory in Brompton.

The existing ABN for Molnar Hoists and Molnar Services will remain until September 2017, when following the full transition of ownership new company details will be published along with the appearance of a new by-line ‘Part of the Stenhøj Group’. Further details will be made available in due course.

We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you in the future. If you would like some further information on the Stenhøj Group please visit
