AT&S Fehring Plant: EUR 10 Million Investment and 70 New Jobs


Reading time ( words)

With the expansion project, which involves investments of EUR 10 million, the AT&S plant in Fehring will receive a significant technological upgrade: Starting in March 2019, high-end printed circuit boards will be manufactured in Fehring, primarily for the Automotive sector – high-frequency printed circuit boards for applications in the area of autonomous driving, for example sensors for distance measurements. In addition, products for civil aviation will be produced in cooperation with the Leoben site, as well as printed circuit boards for medical applications.

“With this technology expansion and an additional 1,200 square meters of space, around 70 new jobs will be created,” said AT&S CEO Andreas Gerstenmayer. “And the site will be secured within the AT&S Group in the long term. This is a strong signal for the industrial development in the region of South East Styria and is fully in line with our strategy to develop sites further through technology expansion. We also receive valuable support from the province of Styria in this project.”

Barbara Eibinger-Miedl, member of the provincial government responsible for economic affairs, added, “AT&S is an important lead company in Styria and makes a significant contribution to the positive development of the local economy with its research projects and products. The expansion of the Fehring site is an investment in the future, which provides for value creation, new jobs and consequently quality of life in the region. I would like to thank Andreas Gerstenmayer and the entire AT&S team for this strong commitment to Styria as a business location!”

Heinz Moitzi, chief operations officer, emphasizes the importance of the topic of qualification.

“The state-of-the-art technology used is an excellent opportunity for the employees to further improve their qualifications. This refers especially to the topic of automation and therefore represents a very good opportunity for the applications in the latest standards for Industry 4.0.”
