For the 24th time, the annual Austrian Export Prize was awarded to the country’s most successful export companies at Exporters’ Nite 2018. One of the winners: Novomatic in the Tourism and Leisure Industry category.
Every year since 1994, the Austrian Export Prize is awarded to Austrian companies with the most success in foreign markets. This year, Novomatic applied for the prize and emerged as a winner in the Tourism and Leisure Industry category. The leading company from Gumpoldskirchen, with a strong focus on export, was honored for international success by Federal Minister Margarete Schramböck and WKO President Harald Mahrer at a Black Tie Gala in the Vienna Museumsquartier.
Novomatic has been steadily improving its turnover since the company was founded 38 years ago. The gaming technology group is a clear market leader in Europe, and active around the globe with more than 300 subsidiaries. In total, the firm employs more than 25,500 employees worldwide, 3,300 of those in Austria alone.
“As a globally operating gaming technology group with exports to more than 75 countries, this prize is not just a high commendation for the company’s successful international engagement, but also confirmation that we are contributing significantly to Austria’s export success,” said Novomatic CEO Harald Neumann. “Not only that, we are proud, with an export quota of around 97%, to do our part for Austria’s economic success,” he continued.
