Riedel Communications Austria GmbH

Vienna is the ideal gateway to Southeast and Eastern European markets. At the same time, it is also the company’s innovation centre. Two of the three most important product groups of Riedel Communications were developed in Vienna. 

The entire Success Story is available here.

Motivation and productivity are sustainably good at the Viennese site. I would say that less undue pressure is exerted on employees. I am talking about the often-quoted easy-going manner of the Austrians. At the same time, this trait is our winning formula. It promotes creativity and is successful in the long term.
