2015 Export award winners: AUSTRIA CARD-Plastikkarten und Ausweissysteme GmbH


Since 1994 the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy have been presenting Export Awards to Austrian companies for their exceptional success on international markets. This year the prize in the "Information and Consulting" category went to AUSTRIA CARD-Plastikkarten und Ausweissysteme GmbH.

Austria Card is an international provider and innovative trailblazer in smart cards and systems for printing and information management. With VISA, MasterCard, Diners Club and JCB, the most renowned credit card companies and more than 300 banks rely on the quality and technology of Austria Card.

The most stringent security standards, extensive experience in handling sensitive data and a thirst for innovation have also opened up access to some of the world's most prestigious orders. For example, Austria Card is one of just four companies in the world to have achieved supplier status for the Oyster Card, the travel card for London's public transport. The company produces over 8 million of these cards each year and has also manufactured the world's first ID card with credit card function for the Nigerian government.

Austria Card and its 400 employees produce more than 60 million cards per year, with around 70% exported - primarily to Central and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East.
