Webasto employees infected with coronavirus; global auto sector to be affected

Austrian machinery company Wittmann Group has acquired Austria-based auxiliary firm FarragTech, which is based in Wolfurt in the Vorarlberg region. Terms were not disclosed.

For more than 25 years, FarragTech has been active in plant engineering for plastics processing in the auxiliary equipment sector, with one main focus within its product range on compressed air granulate drying. As the inventor of the compressed air granulate dryer as well as internal compressed air mould cooling for blow moulding processes, FarragTech has invariably been setting benchmarks when it comes to utilising the benefits inherent in these technologies, says a statement. 

Another main focus of the company’s product development lies on protection against condensation water for cooled moulds, in which area FarragTech has created an energy-efficient and low-cost solution.

Further development of the FarragTech products from all three sectors will be driven forward, and it is planned to have the appliances seamlessly integrated into the open concept of Wittmann 4.0 technology, said Wittmann.

The company’s previous owner Aaron Farrag is taking over the compressed air drying and cooling segment as Product Manager, and will incorporate this product line into the Wittmann Group. 

Wittmann Managing Director Michael Wittmann is looking forward to the future cooperation: “We extend a very cordial welcome to the FarragTech team in our group of companies. With the small-quantity dryers from FarragTech, we are closing a gap in our product portfolio. Our international outreach – combined with the advantages of these technically outstanding products – promises an enormous growth potential for our new product segment.”

The Wittmann Group produces injection moulding machines, robots and peripheral equipment for the plastics processing industry, headquartered in Vienna/Austria and consisting of two main divisions: Wittmann Battenfeld and Wittmann. These two divisions have eight production plants in five countries. Additional sales and service companies are active in 34 facilities.
