Project implementation

After the space was planned on the digital drawing board, extensive conversion work took place during which the space was gutted and renovated from scratch.

The specially and hand-made platform required a lot of skill, but was nevertheless worth the effort: Together with the mountain panorama consisting of almost 500 individual images, the possibilities for adventure with Petromax will reveal themselves the moment you enter. We emphasised especially on natural materials during the renovation.

With new flooring, a checkout area, the first rows of shelves and the room dividers for the future training area, anticipation started to set it. The custom-made furnishings and panelling made from tree trunk cuttings were important design elements. After all, wood and cast-iron Petromax products combine perfectly.

After further detailing and final touches, the Petromax World was ready to open on time in April 2018.

Since then, the Petromax World has been the centre of our headquarters. Fans and visitors can touch, test and combine our high-quality products. And our partners and specialised retailers can come here to receive comprehensive training and information on our open-air site.
