Working and living in the Bregenzerwald

Come to stay!

The home of Dorner Electronic is the Bregenzerwald. A confident region orientated on the future in the west of Austria where 30,000 people manage to maintain a balance between the modern and the traditional in a unique manner. Here, on the border with Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany, the economy and society pulsate in equal measure. A region that celebrates top performers – and that courageously drives forward innovations. And nevertheless: culture, indulgence and recreation are very important in the Bregenzerwald.
