Trodat has its roots in Austria, but it hasn’t let national boundaries stop it. Today the Trodat Trotec group encompasses more than 35 international subsidiaries, with more than 1,350 employees worldwide. The international Trodat Group’s turnover for 2015 was €216,1 million. Trodat has been expanding single-mindedly for decades thereby becoming the world’s market leader in self-inking stamps and dominating engraving, marking, and cutting in the laser area with Trotec.

With all those products and subsidiaries, Trodat offers everything associated with the subject of stamps. Business partners and customers all over the world have been happy for years with this value-added philosophy.

Trodat stamp products are innovative and suitable for every application. Sister company Trotec manufactures appropriate technology for stamp producers enabling them to produce stamp products with consistently clean and beautiful impressions. Both business and private customers can compose and purchase the perfect stamp online via the in-house uTypia shop solution – and that in colour since the market introduction of Trodat Multi Color Impression !

Trodat delivers to customers in more than 150 countries around the world; the export share is over 98 per cent. However Trodat doesn’t content itself with this success. The course is being set with a forward-looking corporate strategy not only to secure the company’s existence for the future, but above all to ensure growth in all areas.


Trodat is in fact an Austrian company, but it’s never let national boundaries stop it. Today, Trodat is active in over 150 countries worldwide. 13 of them have their own subsidiaries:

Trodat Germany  | Trodat France | Trodat Poland | Trodat UK | Trodat USA | Trodat Marking Canada | Trodat China

The group of companies known as the Trodat Trotec Holding GmbH operates as the world leading stamp business under the Trodat brand name and also as the world leading laser business under the Trotec brand name. The group currently generates overall sales amounting to more than 216 million euros and employs around 1,350 people in over 35 subsidiaries worldwide. The group has a business presence in more than 150 countries worldwide. Exports make up more than 98% of its business.

Trodat, as the largest stamp manufacturer in the world by far, and Trotec, as world market leader in laser plotters for engraving, cutting and marking, each operate as subsidiaries under the umbrella of the “Trodat Trotec Holding”. Corporate planning predicts more or less equal sales for the two companies by 2020, which should amount to 300 million euros in total.

The “Trodat Trotec Holding” has its company seat in Wels/Upper Austria, where the most important stamp production site, including its research and development facilities are also located. The Trotec production and sales site is situated in Marchtrenk, approximately 2 km from Wels.
About 40% of the total 1,350 “Trodat Trotec group” employees are based in Austria.
As a private company, the Trodat Trotec Holding GmbH is 100% owned by family foundations.

The stamp business (founded in 1912) has a history of more than 100 years and currently employs approximately 900 staff, around 400 of them in Austria. At the moment more than 3/4 of the sales are generated in Europe and the United States. However, global growth in the stamp business increasingly takes place outside of Europe, especially due to growing demand in emerging markets, such as China, where the need for stamps is increased by the tens of thousands of start-up companies that are founded daily.

The laser business originated in the stamp plate production area but has been operating as an independent company since 1997 and currently employs approximately 450 staff, around 180 of them in Austria. A second, strong (independent) business pillar thus developed, which has shown significantly stronger growth in recent years than originally expected. Trotec appeals to existing Trodat customer groups worldwide as a complementary service provider, while also particularly appealing to completely new markets. In the coming years the laser business is predicted to achieve growth rates of around 20% per year, thanks to its technological edge and advanced specialist knowledge.

Trodat is working with renowned designer agencies on the latest product solutions that orient themselves to international market trends. Technological edge and energy efficiency are decisive not only in product development and the product itself, but also in principle across the entire production process. Innovation leadership also underscores, for instance the application of high-performance foils for surface design, unique in the world of stamps with the new Original Printy 4.0.
Still more: the new Printy 4.0 is climate-neutral as standard with integrated energy efficiency and energy savings across the entire process chain from raw materials, through production methods and systems to the finished product itself.

Not just innovative edge with the product itself, but in principle also the aspiration to be constantly a step ahead of the competition by a nose in production technology, contributes considerably to the international Trodat success story.
Highly qualified employees are the basis for this. The latest generation of fully automated production systems was also conducted completely in-house from design through construction to start-up. In the process, the focus is always on stable processes in regard to manufacturing methods and production logistics, which ensure market requirements in point of quality and delivery dependability.
