- Success Stories
Successful companies depend on the expertise and motivation of their employees. The British multinational Primetals Technologies relies on an international team at the company’s site in Linz. Skilled workers from all over the world contribute to making the plant engineering company a leader in its industry. The shortage of skilled workers does not make it easy to find experienced employees who also display a high willingness to travel.
For this reason, WORK in AUSTRIA is particularly pleased that ABA Immigration and Residence Services employees were able to assist Primetals Technologies to expand its team. In general, the experts at WORK in AUSTRIA help Primetals with the application process for various residence permits for international talents and advise the company’s human resources department as well as future employees and their family members on all issues relating to immigrating to Austria.
“The cooperation with Austrian Business Agency (ABA) is of vital importance to us here at Primetals Technologies Austria GmbH in its capacity as an international company. ABA’s support in our hiring third country nationals considerably facilitates the process of obtaining residence permits. ABA is constantly in close contact with us and our future employees and answers every question on the residence permit application process quickly and reliably. It also checks the required documents and the application forms of future employees before they are submitted. Moreover, ABA informs us as the employer as soon as all the documents are complete, have been prepared in line with legal requirements and the application can be submitted to the Municipal Authority Linz. All this is quite remarkable. Support is provided from the beginning to the end of the process, which in turn offers us and prospective employees a high degree of confidence and security. We highly value the professional support and specialist expertise of ABA and look forward to a continuing and successful collaboration.”
