Silver Export Award presented to AOP Orphan

April 9th 2021

As reported previously, AOP Orphan is the recipient of the prestigious 2020 Silver Export Award in the Specialized Sectors & Craft category. On Friday, April 9 Deputy Secretary General Mariana Kühnel from the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKO) came to our office to present us with the award.

We are proud that AOP Orphan’s efforts and success in helping rare disease patients worldwide are recognized and acknowledged. In 2019, global exports accounted for more than 70% of AOP Orphan’s turnover, exports to Germany alone increased by 240%!

“I want to thank and congratulate all AOP Orphan Group team members who are the drivers behind our global success story! Due to our ambitious approach, we will be able to increase our export volume even further in the coming years. In 2024, export sales of our innovative treatment for Polycythaemia vera patients alone are expected to surpass the AOP Orphan Group’s total turnover of 2020 – thousands of patients suffering from this rare cancer will benefit every day from our latest, first-line monotherapy.” says CEO Andreas Steiner.

Petra Lanz, Chief Commercial Officer and Andreas Steiner, Chief Executive Officer accepted the award on behalf of AOP Orphan.
