Every idea, every future step begins with a vision.
Even as a journeyman, family man Manfred Landig was known for often not being satisfied with the way things are. An avid hunter and refrigeration technician, he worked diligently on refrigeration and packaging solutions for food in his early years. His focus was particularly on meat, in all its aspects. This specialization paid off later when it came to using the experience he gained to revolutionize the Dry Aging of food.
Manfred Landig’s sons, Christian and Aaron, have been involved in the construction of refrigeration equipment at their parents’ business since they were children. After college, master school, and gaining professional experiences elsewhere, the brothers finally returned in 2012, with one goal in mind: To revolutionize the process of Dry Aging. From now on, they are unstoppable.
Christian and Aaron have to start from scratch. There are no reliable sources on what Dry Aging is or what it entails. After several years of research and development, the brothers finally succeed in completing their Dry Aging Fridge and presenting it to the world – 100% Made in Germany. The response is phenomenal!
The Landig Brothers’ products and solutions are now available in more than 60 countries with a local sales and service network. Thus, with a lot of hard work, courage, and heart and soul, the DRY AGER® brand managed to become the undisputed number 1 in the field of professional solutions for Dry Aging within a few years. Rightly so, and they are particularly proud of it.
The new generation of meat enjoyment.
The course for the future has been set. Today, Christian and Aaron run the company together with their younger brother Dr. Andreas Landig. Incidentally, work is already once again underway on new forward-looking projects. The company with a family tradition, located in the south of Germany, still has the manufacturing character of the past. People who work hard for their customers and give their best – every day.
In Bad Saulgau in Upper Swabia, Manfred Landig founded a specialist company for refrigeration technology and refrigeration system construction. The high quality standard, combined with good customer service, quickly earned the small company with only a few employees a good reputation, as well as regional and national recognition.
A mature company
In the meantime, the small business has grown into a company that operates throughout Europe. With a clear focus on the food sector, and in particular on proper meat storage and cooling, vacuum packaging technology, and equipment and tools for food processing. High-quality products are the top priority, then for the founder of the company is this the best environmental protection.
The sons take the helm
Manfred Landig’s two sons, both passionate grillers, start tinkering with an ominous machine in their father’s workshop. This develops into a real meat aging cabinet with the support of their father and the in-house experts. Christian and Aaron Landig are now unstoppable.
The DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge is born
After endless hours of work with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, the two brothers finally developed a fully functional prototype. Together with butchers and scientists from a food laboratory, the device was put through its paces in countless test runs. The results are absolutely convincing and represent a revolution in the meat industry, because never before had the process of Dry Aging been so easy to implement and so precisely reproducible.
DRY AGER takes off
The DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge is now unstoppable. After completion of product development and approval of the marketing concept, the first series is officially launched on the market. The website goes online and the first trade fair appearances are launched. The interest exceeds expectations. The Landig brothers had not expected such an enormous response. But that was only the beginning.
A new era of Dry Aging
Today, the DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge is available all over the world. The technology has continued to be developed and in 2021 the Landig brothers have once again unleashed a small revolution in the Dry Aging industry. Dry Aging at the touch of a button for meat, fish, ham, sausage, cheese, and much more. Thanks to innovative SmartAging® technology, completely new possibilities are now opening up.
