Hirtenberger AG was founded in 1860 as a family business to manufacture metal products and armaments. The privately-owned company is headquartered in Austria and has production plants in Eastern Europe. In recent decades, two main areas of business have emerged which produce a variety of products for different industries: defence systems and automotive safety systems.
The management board of Hirtenberger AG and Management Factory carried out a joint evaluation of the individual business areas and group synergies which formed the basis for a strategic concept for the entire group. This concept was then quantified in a multi-year plan and matched with specific measures.
