The Austrian financial newspaper WirtschaftsBlatt and its partners have once again honoured the country’s top companies with the ALC (Austria’s Leading Companies) awards. This year’s special award for Vorarlberg’s top employer was decided by the general public and went to Haberkorn.
At the award ceremony, which was held at the Festspielhaus in Bregenz, Vorarlberg, on Monday, 2 November 2015, Haberkorn was praised for its wide range of activities such as proactively informing employees on company performance, profit sharing and the numerous health promotion measures which focus on the importance of employee welfare.
EDiS Meeting In ViennaOn 15 October 2015, members of EDiS gathered at Haberkorn in Vienna for the 23rd Expert Group Meeting on Industrial Hoses and Fittings.The aim of the event was to promote the valuable exchange of information and experiences relating to the procurement market and products of leading technical equipment suppliers from 9 nations (Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain and Sweden). As part of the meeting, the guests were taken on an interesting tour of the Haberkorn logistics facility.On the Friday, Semperit invited the EDiS participants to a company visit in Wimpassing. The two new strip wrapping machines, which enable the highly efficient production of industrial hoses, were particularly fascinating to watch – as was a virtual tour through the new high-end production site in Odry in the Czech Republic, which is due for completion in 2016.
“Our employees are not human resources; they are an integral part of the company,” says Dr. Wolfgang Blum, chairman of top employer Haberkorn (centre of photo).
