2018 Export awards winners: Schiebel Elektronische Geräte GmbH

19. July 2018

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 “crafts and trades” category went to Schiebel Elektronische Geräte GmbH.

Since its foundation in 1951, Schiebel has become a recognised specialist in unmanned aviation and mine detectors. In both areas, the high quality of Schiebel’s products is reflected in significant international demand, and the company’s export ratio is now approaching 100%.

The company’s flagship product is the Camcopter S-100, an unmanned helicopter in use with countless security organisations round the world. It can be used in lifesaving operations on the high seas, for missing person searches, for surveying of inhospitable terrain or for monitoring infrastructure facilities.

The Camcopter has already won a host of design prizes and, a few years ago, even added to the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) in Vienna.

Schiebel’s 240 employees have chalked up sales of some EUR 57 million p.a. and the company has subsidiaries in the USA, the UAE and Cambodia.
