Not the least due to their geographic proximity, German companies play a vital role in the Austrian economy as sales entities and investors. Yet, despite this proximity, the common language and many other similarities, doing business in another country is always a challenge. Deutsche Leasing Austria GmbH, based in Vienna, is one of the five leading asset finance and leasing partners in Austria. Although the market is regressive, the company has been able to achieve annual double-digit growth in recent years. Managing Director Heinz Scheibenpflug is positive that Deutsche Leasing Austria will be able to become one of the top two players in its field in the coming years.
