Wienerberger was founded in 1819 in Vienna and has traded on the Vienna Stock Exchange since 1869. Since 1986 it has transformed from a local Austrian brick-maker to become the world’s largest producer of bricks and a leading supplier of clay roof tiles & paving in Europe.
As with many growth-oriented corporations Wienerberger is constantly striving to increase its level of corporate governance and shareholder participation at its general meetings. Broadridge’s International Shareholder Communications Programme has been selected by Wienerberger to service its 2007 Annual General Meeting. The Programme will facilitate the vote collection process, accurately and electronically.
“We are pleased to have selected Broadridge to service our AGM, as we take very seriously the first-class treatment of our investors and are committed to increasing meeting participation”, said Thomas Melzer, Head of Corporate Communications at Wienerberger.
