A team of four set sail for a new beginning and formed SAVYA Austria Automation GmbH in December 2022. Once again, an Indian investor has recognised the potential and competence in the Waldviertel and has once again gained a foothold in Austria – this time in the automation industry.
With visions, courage and ambitious plans in their luggage, Markus Hahn, Christian Kalser, Herbert Wallner and Markus Weber, as a well-rehearsed team from the automotive industry, are now facing the upcoming challenges in the international environment of the automation industry together. “I need challenges in my daily work and the opportunity to realise myself,” says Herbert Wallner. It was now up to the founding members not to let this unique opportunity pass and to become active. “After almost 20 years in the automotive industry, I wanted to seize the opportunity of a new start with ambitious plans in the field of medical technology,” Markus Hahn also describes his motives. As a small team for the time being, everyone is in a position to contribute their personal strengths and know-how and thus drive the company’s growth from their own resources. “Multi-functionalities are in demand here, i.e. in addition to programming, I also devote myself increasingly to e-planning, CE, control and safety technology,” Christian Kalser continues. A special focus is on building up the programming of the automation systems to the current state of the art.
One thing is clear, the team members do not lack ambition and will, as Markus Weber once again proves: “The incentive for me was to start completely from scratch. This includes putting together a very good team, entering a new market (e.g. medical technology) with them and being able to serve customers from the most diverse market segments from all over the world.”
The start is promising – as soon as the SAVYA team moved into the office in Vitis, enquiries started coming in from all over the world, from Austria to Germany, Turkey, India and the USA. So it seems that the vision of the Waldviertel-based start-up “to realise complex automation solutions for international customers from different industries” will soon become reality.
We congratulate the young team of SAVYA Austria Automation GmbH on this courageous step! We wish them all the best and are pleased to have a competent and flexible partner for automation solutions in the immediate vicinity.
