Economic award "Innviertler" 2017

The "Innviertler" was awarded to AGS-Engineering, in the category 10-49 employees.

On Thursday March 2, 2017, companies from the districts Schärding, Braunau and Ried were awarded with the economic award "Innviertler" in the districts newspaper (BezirksRundschau), their partner Sparkasse OÖ, WKOÖ, Land OÖ and tax consultant Herbert Niedermayer.

This award is awarded only once every 4 years, and distinguishes companies
- whose business successes have a signal effect for the whole area Innviertel
- which set particular economic impulses in the region
- securing existing jobs and creating new jobs
- which are strongly established in the region
- which create pioneering innovations

The award presentation took place at the Loryhof in Wippenham.
In each category, three nominees were called on the stage and received a certificate. Finally, the presenter got an envelope with the actual winner. The excitement was so great and even greater the pleasure as AGS actually received the "Innviertler".

"This Award is above all YOUR success"

With these words, managing director Walter Kohlbauer displays how proud he is of his employees and the AGS-team!



On 7 Sept. 2015, AGS was awarded in the category "Innovation-up to 50 employees" in very festive atmosphere at the new Weberziele  in Ried, the economic price "INN AWARD 2015."  Our company was assessed by a jury consisting of experts and leaders from business, institutions and media. Decisive for the award was the overall innovative character of AGS-Engineering and the fact that over the past 3 years we have doubled the turnover and number of employees.



Leading Company Austria

AGS Engineering GmbH, systems engineering and facility automation company, located in TechnoZ in Ried received the award “Industry Leader Austria.”
It is not the size or the turnover of a company that is crucial, but the exemplary and innovative character. Heinz Hoffer , the managing director  also emphasized "Industry Leader Austria is not a competition, distinguished through their individual strengths." Industry Leading companies are involved through their achievements, absolute benchmarks and performance in developing the economy. Walter Kohlbauer, AGS-managing director states: “it is only possible with a compatible team in which everyone contributes and implements accordingly.”  AGS-Engineering is a competent automation partner in the fields of automation, building control, access control, software, robotics, image processing, engineering and electrical engineering.

"HENRI" Price for voluntary

The Red Cross of Upper Austria honors companies, schools, clubs and individuals who are committed in a special way for volunteering with this award.
AGS-Engineering encourages and lives the voluntariness and was awarded in the category small businesses.
Walter Kohlbauer, managing director, and his family go above and beyond being good examples. They are in choirs, in the parish council, involved in the volunteer fire department, sports clubs and the Red Cross. Many people follow this example and also engage in voluntary activities, which in turn will be rewarded with paid exemption.
During the last flood the volunteers involved from the company were granted paid leave.
