ERBER AG, the parent company of Opens external link in new windowBIOMIN and Opens external link in new windowROMER LABS, won the award for “Best Family Company in Lower Austria 2017”.

"On behalf of ERBER Group (and the holding company ERBER AG) and all of our employees, I would like to thank you for this award. I am very happy, as it confirms the success of our sustainability-based growth strategy. We have pursued this strategy consistently since 1983, when the company was founded in Lower Austria," said Erich Erber, PhD h.c., supervisory board member and co-owner of ERBER AG.

Innovation in the interest of customers, internationalization for global use and integration for the Group’s maximum performance are the key principles of success which are the driving force behind ERBER Group’s activities. The increase in the Group’s net sales, which have doubled every 5 to 6 years so far, attests to the success of the strategy it has chosen. An additional 400 employees will be needed in the next few years in order to consistently maintain this growth rate.

"We are Pioneers, Partners and Performers. This is the reason for our partners’ success and the success of the entire ERBER Group," Erich Erber proudly stated.

The annual award for excellent entrepreneurship in Austria was initiated 17 years ago. "Die Presse" and its partners – this year Bankhaus Spängler, BDO Austria and Österreichische Notariatskammer – are on the lookout for the top family businesses in Austria every year.

One reason for this award is the cumulative economic power of Austrian family businesses: more than 80 percent of all Austrian companies are family businesses, and therefore they represent the largest number of Austrian employers.

All applications were reviewed and assessed by a jury of renowned experts who identified the best family business in each of Austria’s nine federal provinces.
