2019 Export awards winners: Miba AG


The annual export prizes recognise the extraordinary achievements of Austrian companies on international markets. They have been awarded by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs since 1994. This year’s gold award in the ‘industry’ category went to Miba AG.

Miba AG have made it their mission to make motor vehicles, trains, ships, aircrafts and industrial plants more efficient, more productive and more environmentally friendly. The Miba Group develops and manufactures sintered components, bearing races, friction linings, coatings and high-performance electronic components for clients around the world, in addition to creating and producing special machinery.

The year 2018 saw the largest acquisition in the company’s history – along with a first venture into a previously unexplored market sector – as Miba took over the John Crane Group’s industrial bearings segment. The four manufacturing facilities (three in the USA, one in Germany) are now part of the Miba Bearing Group.

Miba AG’s approximately 7,400 staff are based at 26 production sites in Europe, Asia, North and South America and achieved profits of EUR 985 million in the financial year 2018/19 – meaning that both the staff numbers and turnover of this family firm have doubled in size since 2010
