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."
ENGEL has invested 55 million euros in Upper Austria in the last three years. A new building offering a total of 10,000 square metres of additional space has been erected in the southern part of the headquarters in Schwertberg. Of these, more than 6,000 square metres are being used for new offices to strengthen the sales and service teams. The apprentice workshop have moved into the new building on about 1,300 square metres and equipped with new machines, while 300 square metres have been allocated to the day nursery. By having its own childcare centre, ENGEL is making it even easier for its staff to balance family and professional obligations.
Further building measures for the Schwertberg site are already being planned. The main priority here is to increase the assembly capacity. Among other things, the North Hall, which was built in 2013, will be expanded. A new customer technology centre is also being built at the headquarters.
