Welcome home, SAN Group!
SAN Group is relocating its headquarters from Singapore to Austria and bundling its competencies in Herzogenburg in the future. With the effect of April 2022 the business units animal health (SAN Vet), crop protection (SAN Agrow), and real estate development and green energy (SAN Venture) will be centrally managed from Lower Austria.
“Bringing home” the company under the best possible conditions was a particular concern for owner Erich Erber, who originally comes from Lower Austria. Relocating the corporate headquarters to Austria significantly simplifies internal company processes and was thus a logical step. All corporate functions will be bundled in the new SAN Biotech Park in Herzogenburg from winter 2023 onwards: offices, laboratories for research and development, hydrogen production and refueling stations, as well as technical facilities such as photovoltaic and test plants.
“Austria is an excellent base for the SAN Group’s international activities,” says Erber, who has known the market for many decades. Research facilities such as the IFA in Tulln (Inter-University Research Department), BOKU (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna) or Vet Med (University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna) offer great conditions for the biotechnology sector. Highly qualified, motivated staff, stable economic conditions, and the excellent quality standards make Austria an exceptionally desirable location for innovative companies.
Erber has always pursued new paths and invested in future-oriented technologies. His outlook about the future of the company is positive thanks to the increasingly important business areas of the SAN Group. “Solutions for a better tomorrow! Nothing else matters,” the entrepreneur says, inspired by a well-known quote by Albert Einstein.
