We bring the world to Carinthia. Under this motto, the Austrian Economic Chambers organised a consultation day for trade representatives which included a visit to WILD GmbH in Völkermarkt.

Trade representatives operating on behalf of the Austrian Economic Chambers in more than 70 countries around the world act as door openers, as a vital source of information and as matchmakers, and they are perfectly familiar with the particularities of their respective countries. Eleven of them, specifically those from Southern and Eastern Europe, were recently invited by WILD to get to know a company that has come to epitomise Carinthian entrepreneurship. “The complexity of products and technologies, the vertical range of manufacture, the clarity and cleanliness and the high technological level we offer at the Völkermarkt site raised a great deal of interest among the visitors”, reports Dr. Josef Hackl, CEO of the WILD Group. “I was in turn impressed with how keen the trade representatives were to identify the areas in which they can support us and how unbureaucratic their approach is.”

Even though Southern and Eastern Europe represent less of a potential for the WILD Group, these countries are particularly interesting especially in the quest for new suppliers in the areas of mechanics, sheet metal production and optics. “We will take this visit as an opportunity to intensify our current procurement research and place a renewed emphasis on these countries”, says Hackl.
