As Austria’s premier autocluster, ACstyria has considered its task to be linking up business, industry, research and public institutions in the mobility sector for 20 years. 

The Styrian Automotive Cluster ACstyria was founded in  1995  with  the  goal  of  promoting  automobile-industry competency in Styria, Austria. In order to strengthen the position of Styria as a leading mobility-region, ACstyria Autocluster has strategically widened its field of action to Aerospace and Rail Systems in 2012 and 2013 respectively. ACstyria’s seven shareholders  with  their  know-how  and  economic  power represent a central pillar for the Styrian automotive cluster. With these partners, ACstyria Autocluster is perfectly gearded up for today’s and future challenges.

The seven shareholders are:

  • AVL
  • CROSS Industries
  • Krenhof Schmiedetchnik
  • Magna Steyr
  • SFG
  • TCM International
  • voestalpine

The mission

The mission of ACstyria Autocluster is to integrate stakeholders from the business, industrial, academic, and political communities into a robust network, and to  identify  areas  that  are  ripe  for  innovation  and synergy. As Austria’s premier automotive cluster, ACstyria has set itself the goal of optimizing the innovative capacities of its members and to consolidate Styria’s outstanding position as one of Europe’s leading regions for research, development, and production.

Enabling information and technology sharing through cross-disciplinary projects and events, as well as establishing well-directed activities in training and qualification are among the core competencies of ACstyria Autocluster.

ACstyria Clean Mobility

In order to be prepared for the future, a common strategic alignment among the partners of ACstyria has been  elaborated. „Strategy  2020”  can  be  summed up  by  the  title „CLEAN  MOBILITY”,  which  encompasses  three  clearly  defined  areas  of  emphasis: ECO-Powertrains (alternative powertrain technologies), ECO-Materials (environmentally friendly and resource-saving materials) and ECO-Design & Smart Production (cost-efficient and intelligent production systems).
