Austria's plastics industry setting new standards worldwide

26. September 2013

High quality standards, technological excellence and Austrian expertise enjoy a stellar reputation on the international markets.

Plastic is the most commonly processed material in the world – from exceptionally lightweight packaging material to extremely resilient components in the aerospace sector.

Austria’s companies have a wealth of experience in developing, producing and processing plastics and enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide. The industry is highly export-oriented: in the plastics processing sector around a third of total production is exported. When it comes to plastics machinery, exports account for over 90%.

Austrian providers also supply recycling technology, modules, tools and automation systems, which guarantee their customers the very best in quality and productivity. Other key success factors include a skilled and highly trained workforce with good connections to manufacturers in other countries, as well as a vibrant research scene.
