Franz Haas CFT - the history

Wafer know-how innovatively developed

Based on the success which Franz Haas had with the first wafer machine HV6, the development of ice cream cone baking ovens was started in the early fifties. In 1952, the first machine of this type – the TA – was presented and rapidely improved by know-how transfer from the field of wafer production.


This generated innovation impulses that led to the introduction of a series of new ovens in the eighties. In 1983, the first rolled sugar cone baking oven TRO 48 was launched on the market. The first waffle baking oven SOW followed in 1984. In 1988, the first pancake baking oven was introduced. Further developments followed during the nineties, and in 2002 the cone machinery specialist GAM Steinhoff was integrated.

Finally, in 2012, the business unit Convenience Food and Cones (CFT) was turned into an independent company within the Haas Group to be more focused on the specific demands in the field of convenience food and cone production.
