An uncompromising attitude to high quality steel processing is common to all core business fields of Waagner-Biro. The approach is evident in the spectacular architectural creations of the Steel and Glass Engineering division, and in the stage equipment we supply to the world’s foremost performance venues; it applies equally to steel bridge construction and special machinery. In every case – as is apparent in all of the company’s products and solutions – Waagner-Biro sets out to achieve the extraordinary.
Waagner-Biro is a steel engineering organisation based in Vienna. Founded in 1854, the tradition-conscious company has amassed more than 160 years of experience. Today, Waagner-Biro has more than 1,300 employees working at some 17 locations in Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
The Waagner-Biro Group is mindful of its responsibility to customers and wider society. The company is thus committed to considering the interests of all relevant parties as appropriate in its aims and activities.
A globally active company such as Waagner-Biro is not only concerned for its own business success; partners, customers and other stakeholders are part of the value chain. Ensuring these parties benefit from business activity in the same way as the entities of the Waagner-Biro Group is in the interests of the company.
Attractive working environment
Waagner-Biro aims to provide a productive working climate in which all of its staff members are able to develop their personal skills. Aside from fulfilling its legal obligations as an employer, the Group enacts a raft of voluntary measures designed to ensure a positive day-to-day environment for its employees. In this way, Waagner-Biro seeks to meet the needs of staff wherever possible.
Further education and training
In the light of the Waagner-Biro Group’s strategy of growth and internationalisation, making sure staff have the right qualifications and expertise is one of the keys to long-term success. Comprehensive and continual education and training is therefore one of the company’s top priorities. The main emphasis is on internal and external training on technical innovations and project management alongside courses aimed at broadening the language skills of all staff.
Waagner-Biro regards the occupational safety of its employees as non-negotiable. Compliance with all relevant regulations and standards is monitored and documented by the Group’s various business areas as well as the legal affairs department and the respective quality management divisions.
A healthy workforce is a valuable resource for the company; its health policy therefore revolves around continuous optimisation of physical, mental and social conditions at work. To this end, the attainment of a work-life balance for all staff is a central concern.
Companies make a difference to daily life by providing products, services and jobs and creating value. For Waagner-Biro, upholding such fundamental social principles as human rights and equality is a matter of course. Doing business in a responsible manner is therefore a high priority for the Group, which caters to the needs of the societies in which Waagner-Biro companies are active.
Legal regulations concerning the environment and nature conservation are strictly observed at Waagner-Biro production sites in various countries. Engineering, which is planned in offices, has little environmental relevance and local installation services generally have zero impact. Key elements of Waagner-Biro’s environmental policy in this regard include the sparing use of resources and the choice of reputable subcontractors that are committed to environmental issues. Corrosion protection represents one key environmental aspect of steel engineering; Waagner-Biro works according to the latest technical standards when deciding upon a procedure.
