Andreas Gerstenmayer, CEO AT&S AG

The award of the Austrian coat of arms underlines the importance of our headquarters to the country. AT&S is a world leader in the global printed circuit board market, as well as the European market leader and one of the world’s top manufacturers of high-end printed circuit boards. We are one of only a few companies in the industry with operations in Europe, and at the same time we have also enjoyed success in the competitive Asian market. Our customers value quality and governance in line with European standards, and Austria’s long tradition in engineering. An effective balance between high-tech production in Asia and specialised niche manufacturing in Europe is central to our competitive advantage.
