Export awards winners: Greiner AG

18. September 2019

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 special ‘Global Player Award’ went to Greiner AG.

The annual ‘Global Player Award’ honours companies that have achieved a commanding position on the global market over the preceding few years, establishing an efficient overseas network and carving out a niche as pioneers in a sector or a country – and all these criteria are true of Greiner AG .

Greiner began life in 1868, manufacturing cork stoppers for soda water bottles, and the company has since become one of the world’s leading plastic processors and foam rubber producers across a whole spectrum of industrial sectors.

With its four operational divisions (Greiner Packaging International, Greiner Bio-One International, Greiner Foam International and Greiner Extrusion), Greiner has become a major player in the world’s plastics and foam industry and is in fact global market leader in the production of packaging for dairy products.

The company operates a total of 140 facilities across 33 countries in Africa, America, Asia and Europe, employing some 10,800 staff around the globe. Greiner recently reported a turnover of EUR 1.63 billion, with almost 90% of that coming from exports.
