98% of Products Exported

Trodat is a privately-owned company located in Upper Austria, which started off as a small family business in 1912 and has become the global market leader in stamp production over the years.

Due to technical innovations and a shrewd company policy, Trodat has been able to keep up to date with changes in their field. With annual sales of 127.2 million Euro, clients in 160 different countries and an export rate of 98%, Trodat beats out all competitors, nationally as well as internationally.

One reason for the consistent performance of the company is the wide range of products they offer. Trodat provides their clients with everything from multi-colored stamps to laser engraving machines. Their best selling product, however, is “Printy”, a self-coloring stamp with integrated ink pad, which has been in their sales portfolio since the very beginning of the company.

Trodat’s most important export markets are the U.S., Germany and France. That is at least the case for now. In the future the company is planning to break into the Asian market. According to Michael Peduzzi, CEO of Trodat, the Asian market has lots of potential for the industry since stamps are an important feature in Asians’ everyday business life. So far however, Trodat has a subsidiary only in China, but branches in other Asian countries should follow shortly.

In addition to a great variety of products and a strong globalization policy, another reason for Trodat’s long lasting success are their highly qualified employees. Due to its low employee turnover, Trodat received an award for “Top 100 work environments within the European Union” in 2004, 2005 and 2007.
