Engel Austria has been given the gold Corona 2017 award. Conferred by the Federation of Austrian Industries in Upper Austria, the award is an acknowledgement of Engel's strong commitment to people at its headquarters in Upper Austria.

The Corona 2017 award was bestowed in two categories. Engel won first prize in the category Location. Explaining its decision, the jury says: “Engel has increased its workforce in Upper Austria by 16 per cent in two years and has invested a particularly large amount of money in the expansion and modernisation of its headquarters. It has therefore made a lasting contribution to strengthening Upper Austria as a business location."

"We are delighted about the award and particularly pleased that our commitment is not only recognised and appreciated by our staff and customers, but also by the whole region," says Joachim Metzmacher, Chief Production Officer at Engel, in accepting the prize on the company's behalf. "Engel's continuous growth is based on our innovative capacity and this is largely dependent on the general conditions in the region. Here in Upper Austria we benefit from a very good climate for innovation."
