The Swiss Vetropack company increased its contribution to revenue to 13.7 per cent, thanks to the strength of the Swiss franc in the declining domestic market.
Vetropack Austria GmbH, with its two glassworks in Pochlarn and Kremsmunster, again provided the largest share of gross revenue (31.4 per cent).
