Heinz Flatnitzer, Director of the Executive Board of ERBER AG: “ERBER Group sees itself as an expert organization and global market leader in its core competence of mycotoxin risk management – sustainable and forward-thinking. Our international focus on Asia, for instance, and especially on Vietnam, as well as our own research and development are important elements of our success and have been contributing to our steady growth for more than 30 years. ERBER Group currently operates in 142 countries and employs approximately 1,500 people worldwide – about 500 of them here in Austria and 80 in Vietnam.”
Rudolf Stelzhammer, Director of the Executive Board of ERBER AG, is happy about the visit from this high-ranking delegation and refers to the wonderful long-term development, especially in the Asiatic region: “ERBER AG’s sales, together with its divisions BIOMIN, ROMER LABS, SANPHAR and EFB, reached a record of 327 million euros in our business year 2017 – the long-term average of our successful growth is 16% p.a. Vietnam’s contribution to ERBER AG’s overall turnover of the past years has especially increased significantly. This is also based on the good framework conditions in this area: For many years the Socialist Republic of Vietnam has been one of the most dynamic countries in Southeast Asia. The growth rates of past years have always been over 6%; last year we had a growth rate of 6.7%, which was more than the governmental goal.”
