IV Salzburg

The “Association of Industrialists "was the first supra-regional representation of industrial interests in Austria in 1862. Thirty years later, most of the almost 600 regional, local and sectoral industrial organizations came together to form the "Central Association of Austrian Industrialists", a federation of associations. This was followed in 1897 by the " Association of Austrian Industrialists", an association of individual companies.

These predecessor organizations of today's industrial association were based on voluntary membership - in contrast to compulsory membership in the chambers. On March 19, 1896, the first issue of the official organ of the Central Association, "die industrie", was published.
