Milestones in the history of AT&S
From state ownership to a global enterprise. The AT&S success story started with several companies in Austria’s state-owned electronics industry and has reached its current peak with construction work underway in Malaysia and at the headquarters in Leoben. Its rise from a small Austrian company to a global enterprise with plans for further expansion is based on a corporate philosophy that has bright minds, brave investments and innovation at its heart.
