ACTIV Celebrates 30 Years

The 30th anniversary is of great significance and needs to be celebrated properly, which is exactly what we did at ACTIV.

We visited a winery in Goriška Brda, the village of Štanjel and a prosciutto factory in the Karst region in Slovenia. 🍷

Employees from 🇦🇹 Austria, 🇷🇸 Serbia and our 🇸🇮 Ljubljana office joined the celebration, as well as some retired employees.

We spent quality time together to celebrate the anniversary, but we also took the time to analyse how the company has evolved over the years, discuss good practices and take advice from former employees that will certainly help us in our future development.

Since we are of different mindsets and ages and come from different educational backgrounds, we may have different ways of thinking and looking at problems, we may also operate and manage projects differently in some cases.

This diversity is an advantage for our company, as it can only improve our overall productivity and company culture. Having several different opinions leads to creative solutions and innovative methods that help us achieve our goals and improve our business.

🔴 We are growing together.

As much as possible, we need to get to know each other, each other’s work styles and each other’s characters, so that we can find the best solutions for the success of our projects and the company as a whole.




About Activ
Our managing director about youth, education and the close economic cooperation between Austria and Slovenia

According to our General Director Benjamin Wakounig, the President of The Slovenian Business Association (SGZ): “Slovenia and Austria are so closely linked economically that we can hardly do without each other”.

As the CEO of ACTIV Project Management and the President of The Slovenian Business Association, he supports the development of young people, especially young entrepreneurs.

From his experience, he says: “Our primary goal must be to take youth seriously and, with them, to maintain peace in Europe – in the past we would have said to preserve it, today I say – to restore it.”

Plädoyer für die Jugend, Frieden und mehr Bildung

BENJAMIN WAKOUNIG: “I grew up in a Slovenian-speaking home; my father was a blacksmith, my mother a housewife. I’m proud of that.”

About Activ
We are pleased to officially unveil our new logo!

For the last 20 years our logo helped with an extra level of credibility to our company.

After careful consideration of our values and services and how they are reflected in our brand, we decided to modernize our logo.

The old logo was not clearly sufficiently linked to the service we provide, which is project management, particularly in the energy sector. New logo’s aim was to embody the company we have evolved into.

We kept the essential elements, as they are the basis of our company’s identity.

🔴The existing color palette has been slightly refreshed as part of the redesign for a more contemporary feel. By making precise improvements, we have created a more unified and coherent whole, ensuring that the colors work easily together. Blue continues to focus on trust, honesty and reliability, which are our guiding principles in maintaining customer loyalty. Red denotes our energy and passion for our business.

🔴 The sign above the typography indicates movement and action, emphasizing us as always goal-oriented, driven for the success of our projects – for your success.

🔴 The straight line with the added gradient has kept the basic idea, but at the same time we have modernized it to be more dynamic, solid, serious and modern.

Thank you graphic designers Wedesignstuff for bringing our logo ideas to life.

Participation in the Koper/Trieste economic delegation 12.-13.5.22

The Austrian Carinthian Chamber of Commerce (WKK) and the Slovenian Business Association in Klagenfurt (SGZ) with an emphasis on logistics in the Alpine-Adriatic region, organized a visit to the ports of Koper and Trieste and the logistics center Fürnitz/Brnca in Austria.

The ports of the northern Adriatic are an important transport hub for intercontinental, long sea, and short and medium routes from the Mediterranean to China and are essential for the import-export economy.

The advantage of such meetings is that we can always contribute to new networking, potential cooperation as well as new perspectives. Networking with colleagues throughout Slovenia is of great importance because it contributes to the exchange of ideas, and motivation and encourages creative and perspective thinking.

International cooperation in the energy sector

With the agreement, the organisations laid the foundation for cooperation between energy companies, energy experts and the members of both organisations who are active in the energy sector. Furthermore, the signing of the agreement is an important step towards intensifying cross-border activities in the energy sector, which plays an important function in the development strategies of both countries.
