"Outside the box" stands for solutions that are unconventional – whether in terms of their theme, execution, or purpose. They serve as inspiration to consciously think about things differently now and again.
And that is the real objective – to consider and test what happens when you move away from the everyday framework, designing and processing a project outside the usual parameters (the "box").
Outside the box: Trail box system for Fabio Wibmer
Fabio Wibmer a leading star of the bike scene and among one of the most talented riders in the saddle – no matter whether on street trails, downhill, or enduro events (see his CV below for more details). At Economa, we were very happy to collaborate with him on an unusual solution for his show course.
You could say it is a box system outside the box!
For the course he uses in various trail shows, Economa developed a stable, multifunctional system that is easy to transport – the Economa trail box system: different sizes of boxes, ramps, and bridges are constructed individually and stacked inside one another during transport so as to save space (this system was provided by us as a material sponsor).

FABIO WIBMER, born on June 30, 1995, is theNational Downhill Champion and has been signed up with Red Bull since June 2017. Again and again, Fabio surprises with brave projects that have the world holding its breath – by way of example, his line on the narrow railing of a 200-meter high dam and his downhill skills on an old woman's bike went viral and once again proved his impressive creativity and courage.
Fabio's YouTube channel already has more than 200,000 subscribers, and some of his clips have gone viral, with over 1 million views. The young Austrian's social media channels are growing rapidly.
Alongside this, Fabio is still a student. He is registered at the University of Innsbruck, where he is studying sport management.

Outside the box: Dog treadmill
For this "Outside the box" project, we would like to let our customer, Andreas Hauk, Vice President of the ÖVD (Österreichischer Verein der Diensthundeführer - Austrian Association of Service Dog Handlers), speak for himself.
"We principally use the dog treadmill for endurance training, but it is also used for building muscle and rehabilitation after injuries.
The treadmill has a very stable construction and a large running surface (in terms of both length and width), meaning it is suitable even for large and heavy breeds of dog (up to 80 kg).
Additional features: The manual height adjustment is easy to operate and an advantage in various special training programs."
"I chose this treadmill because, on the one hand, it satisfies all my requirements for a dog treadmill and, on the other, if any repairs are needed Economa, with its Vienna branch, can be on site quickly and replacement parts are easy to obtain.
What impressed me was the communication with Economa – the company likes to stay in contact with the customer, is always interested in further developments, and strives to fulfil customers' wishes to the best of its knowledge."
