Karcher’s journey from Germany to Victoria

Alfred Karcher would have to go down in history as one of the greatest innovators. Especially when it comes to the cleaning industry, he is the person and name behind the Karcher brand which is a household name in many countries across the world and right here in Victoria too.

Alfred Karcher completed studies to become an engineer and started developing his own products. He started experimenting and implementing ideas in the field of heating technology and earned a patent very early on. Mr Karcher then moved into the field of cleaning technology and developed Europe’s first hot pressure washer!

Since that first product, the Karcher brand has become recognised globally for its high-powered and high-quality products. At LTS Equipment in Victoria, we are proud to carry the Karcher name, working to uphold the reputation Alfred built.

In fact, it was with great pleasure that we welcomed Karcher representative Moira to Victoria to guide the LTS Equipment team in the set up of our official Karcher centre. Moira travelled all the way from Germany to ensure our centre could successfully open on Monday and start trading right before Christmas! A huge thanks to Moira and the whole LTS Equipment team for their hard work and dedication. Alfred would be proud!
