FACC receives Pegasus business award


FACC was awarded the Pegasus in bronze in the category "Lighthouses".

The Upper Austrian business prize Pegasus was awarded for the 25th time at the gala night of business in the Brucknerhaus in Linz. FACC was awarded the coveted trophy in bronze in the category "Lighthouses”. 

What started off 37 years ago, in 1981, as an idea in the research department of Fischer Ski in Ried im Innkreis has developed into an internationally leading company over the last few years. In the 2017/2018 financial year, the aerospace technology partner FACC achieved the best corporate result in the company's history. Profits increased by 6.4 percent to 750.7 million euros thanks to the company's dynamism and commitment. In addition to figuring among the leading companies in the region, FACC also enjoys a reputation as a leading international company and sought-after employer throughout Germany and the Czech Republic. The company currently employs 3,400 members of staff from 38 nations. 

Many courageous decisions, numerous changes and a few expansion steps were necessary to get to where we are today: we are a leading technology company with international appeal, and we are very proud of this.”

CEO Robert Machtlinger 

We are very proud that FACC applied for the 25th annual Pegasus business award and was selected as one of the winners. The company won the Pegasus in bronze in the category "Lighthouses", which was announced for the first time this year.

This prize is awarded to companies that are strong economic drivers and leading companies in the region and also bear social responsibility. We are very proud to have received this award.

CEO Robert Machtlinger 

This category is awarded to large corporations which are growing at a profitable rate, have a major impact on Upper Austria as a business location and radiate beyond national borders. Further winners and "lighthouses" include Engel Austria and Amag. 

The prestigious Pegasus business awards in bronze were handed over by Axel Greiner, President of the Federation of Austrian Industry, at the Brucknerhaus in Linz.
