Following successful careers in professional journalism, Heidi
and Wolfgang M. Wagenleitner decided to set up their
own PR agency in 1977. Convenient access to the neighbouring countries
of Switzerland, Germany and Liechtenstein was one of the prime
reasons for locating their new headquarters in Dornbirn which
lies in the Rhine Valley close to Austria's western border.
Initially, activities were dedicated exclusively to writing, designing
and producing company newspapers. The creation of in-house publications
continues to rank amongst WIR´s key strengths to this day.
Through our work with company newspapers we were able to acquire
in-depth knowledge of our clients' companies, which led to a growing
volume of assignments relating to external communications.
