Federation of Styrian Industries

The purpose of the Federation of Styrian Industries is to represent the interests of the Styrian industries and thus to be both an initiator and a partner for forward-looking social and economic policy strategies and decisions.

The aim of the Federation of Styrian Industries is to create an exemplary industrial society that ensures a sustainably good quality of life and thus prosperity not only for its members, but for all people in Styria.

The Federation of Styrian Industries considers education as the most precious asset and the most secure basis for value creation in the future. Only education creates the qualifications that lead to excellence and, as a result, to innovation.
