Two new digitally-controlled drilling units were built and put into operation at a cost of about EUR 4.5 million. As a result, the bogie frames are 30 percent faster than in the past. About 980 people are employed at the Graz facility, where some 50 apprentices are being trained. More than 1,640 bogies have been manufactured in Graz since the beginning of the year. These railway bogies from the Graz plant are used for numerous Siemens railway vehicles i.e. trams, subways and other railway vehicles. Annual production capacity totals approx. 2,500 bogies.

This step is embedded in the “Machining Concept 2020" designed to optimize production flows in the factory, further increase productivity and expand the international competitiveness of the site.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
