Arburg opens new tech centre in Austria

Injection moulding machine maker Arburg’s new Arburg Technology Centre (ATC) was inaugurated in Inzersdorf, Kremstal, Austria, recently.

With 300 sq m of floor space, the ATC has more room for machines, spare parts, practical tests and intensive training. The centrepiece of the ATC is the showroom, which offers space for up to five Allrounder injection moulding machines for customers to try out the machine technology and their own moulds. The showroom also offers new opportunities for practical training in Arburg technology. Moreover, courses are available to customers at their own premises, specifically tailored to the respective company and the needs of the employees. The Arburg team in Austria has also been expanded to include more service technicians for quick and expert on-site assistance, says the German machinery maker.

In her speech, Managing Partner Renate Keinath emphasised that "the opening of the new ATC is an important milestone for our presence in Austria and underlines the importance of this highly demanding market for us."

She explained that since the establishment of the subsidiary in 2010, the company has systematically developed and expanded its activities in line with the Arburg "Wir sind da." brand promise. She added that this was proven on a daily basis by the team in Austria with their uncompromising concern for their customers and partners. "Over the past few years, we have strengthened our sales and service team here in Austria, successfully implementing numerous projects," said the Managing Partner, thanking the customers for their confidence in Arburg and their successful cooperation.

Managing Director Sales Gerhard Böhm also expressed his gratitude, emphasising that, "We are very proud that our customer base has grown continuously since the establishment of the subsidiary." He went on to say that the entire Arburg portfolio is in high demand across all industries. This increasingly involves automation solutions and turnkey projects, which Arburg offers as a primary contractor and which cover the entire spectrum: from the design, implementation and commissioning of the individual turnkey solutions through to the after-sales service.

The inauguration event was rounded off by an address from Werner Pamminger, Managing Director of the Business Upper Austria agency. He said, "With more than 80 plastics companies in the vicinity, the new Arburg location is in a good 'ecosystem' that reflects the entire value chain."

The event attended by 100 guests, saw Arburg Managing Partner Renate Keinath symbolically handed over the key to Eberhard Lutz, Managing Director of Arburg Austria.
