SWAROVSKI OPTIK moved from Wattens to Absam almost three-quarters of a century ago. The local community grew alongside the company, and production now takes place in the heart of a residential area. Space is precious, so we ensure our constructions are very compact and always strive to consider our neighbors. This also applied to our most recent infrastructure project, representing an investment of 27 million euros, which was successfully completed in the fall of 2020.
Construction time: 2 years, 3 months
Investment: 27 million euros
Surface area: approx. 1,400 m² (15,000 ft²)
Cubic content: 31,000 m³ (10,900 ft³)
Net area: approx. 5,650 m² (60,800 ft²)
As a family company with strong roots in Tyrol, SWAROVSKI OPTIK takes a long-term view – ensuring job security, asserting global market leadership, achieving sustainable growth, and increasing market value are our key objectives.
To continue to meet strong demand for high-quality binoculars, spotting scopes, and rifle scopes in the future, the company has invested in a new production building, housing a cutting-edge anodization plant for aluminum surface finishing, facilities for optical component production and device assembly, as well as a technical center.
A second new building accommodates 60 workspaces in a bright, healthy, and very pleasant atmosphere.
