The Federation of Austrian Industries is the voluntary and independent representation of the interests of the Austrian industry and its related sectors. Since 1946, the IV has taken part in all legislative processes as a recognised partner of politics. A federal organisation, nine regional groups and the IV office in Brussels represent the issues of currently more than 4,500 members from the manufacturing sector, credit and insurance, infrastructure and industry-oriented services in Austria and Europe. The Federation’s members represent more than 80 per cent of domestic manufacturing companies.
With innovative concepts and expertise, the Federation strives to make Austria fit for the future at the interface between business and politics. At the European level, the Federation of Austrian Industries, one of Europe’s most modern and powerful employers’ associations, is the voice of Austrian industry in the industry and employers’ association BusinessEurope.
