Alfred Krupp founded the Berndorfer Metallwarenfabrik in 1843 in Berndorf. He received the title of Imperial and Royal Court Supplier in 1898. A peculiarity among the products was the so-called alpaca silver. The alpaca silver has great durability, therefore the company used it a lot. The company donated from its profit to many social institutions in Berndorf. These social institutions were, for example, residential buildings or Berndorf schools.
