Wittmann Battenfeld opens new building in Brazil

Injection moulding machine maker Wittmann Battenfeld, which is a part of Austrian auxiliary equipment supplier Wittmann, has moved to a new site in Brazil. The new building in Vinhedo (São Paulo) has a floor space of 850 sq m und thus offers enough room for optimal support to local customers.

Wittmann says Brazil has been the most important market for it in South America for many years, and this has been a reason for its expansion in the country. Also the space in the previous set up became too confined due to customers commissioning entire work cells, adds the firm.

Due to the challenging situation caused by Covid-19, the relocation, originally planned for March this year, was delayed. But at the beginning of August it finally happened.

In addition to areas for offices and meetings, the new building also includes space for storage, servicing, training programs and customer inspections. Thanks to their spacious layout, the new premises are now considerably more suitable than the previous site for presenting complete injection moulding systems, i. e. injection moulding machines fully equipped with automation and auxiliaries.

Michael Wittmann, Managing Director of Wittmann Kunststoffgeräte GmbH and co-owner of the Wittmann Group, and Cássio Luís Saltori, Managing Director of Wittmann Battenfeld do Brasil, commissioned the new building.

Headquartered in Vienna/Austria, the Wittmann Group produces injection moulding machines, robots and auxiliaries for the plastics processing industry, and consists of two main divisions: Wittmann Battenfeld and Wittmann. They jointly operate the companies of the group with eight production plants in five countries, and its additional sales and service companies are active with 34 facilities worldwide.
