Since 1994 the Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Ministry of Economics have been awarding "Export prizes" to Austria's most successful export firms. This year the prize in the Trade category went to Swarovski Optik from Tyrol.

The winner of the 2009 export prize in the Trade category was Swarovski Optik Vertriebs GmbH . For over 60 years now, Swarovski Optik, part of the Swarovski Group, has been producing high quality, long-range optics (such as binoculars, telescopes and rifle scopes) for professional users around the world. With a workforce of 588 headquartered in Absam/Tyrol, the company generated revenues of around EUR 80 million last year. 90% of production is exported. Despite the economic crisis, Swarovski Optik has forecast results similar to the positive levels of the previous year.
