In order to gain a comprehensive insight into companies and projects that have an impact far beyond the borders of the region, the Federal Minister for the EU and Constitution, Karoline Edtstadler, visited the Waldviertel in the north of Austria on August 2. A visit to the Pollmann plant in Vitis was also on the agenda.

The Minister was accompanied by National Council Members Martina Diesner-Wais and Lukas Brandweiner, Federal Councilor Viktoria Hutter, Mayor Anette Töpfl and the Honorary Chairman of the Waldviertel Academy, Ernst Wurz.

Rooted in the Waldviertel, at home in the world

Owner Markus Pollmann took his guests on a journey through the company's history. The contrast between the modest beginnings in 1888 and the visited state-of-the-art plant in Vitis, which was only opened in 2020, could not be bigger.

Minister Edtstadler was particularly interested in the expansions to the Czech Republic, China and Mexico and was impressed by the international success of the family business in the automotive segment.

"Our connection to the Waldviertel region is deeply rooted and was underlined by the establishment of the second domestic plant in Vitis, but we are also proud to be at home in the world. It is important to us that our region is recognized worldwide and we are happy to contribute to this with our company," says Markus Pollmann.
