Arburg inaugurates Taiwan subsidiary


Germany machinery manufacturer, Arburgofficially inaugurated its Taichung-based subsidiary on 22 September. Some 150 guests were invited and a high-profile delegation from the German parent company also attended the occasion. The Taiwan subsidiary has already been actively operating since April 2016. During the event, Arburg's Managing Partner Renate Keinath and Managing Director Sales Gerhard Böhm emphasised the significance of Taiwan's high-tech market.

“The founding of the Arburg organisation is an important milestone of the company's successful development in Taiwan,” said Renate Keinath, adding, “Over the past 35 years, we have enjoyed excellent representation by C & F International Corp. in this important market. However, Arburg has never been known to rest on its laurels. We always endeavour to offer our customers an even better range of products and services.”

Because Taiwan has great significance for Arburg as an innovative market with numerous high-end companies, the stated objective is to not only to secure a local presence with a subsidiary over the long term, but also to strategically expand it further. Keinath explained that the new premises offer some 550 sq m of floorspace, providing the perfect setting for the extensive service offerings. The showroom also provides sufficient space for three Allrounder injection moulding machines.

After the inauguration ceremony, the guests had the opportunity to gain a first-hand impression of the extensive facilities at the new subsidiary. Furthermore, two seminars provided expert knowledge on trends and developments in injection moulding in general, as well as on the processing of liquid silicone (LSR).

During the subsequent evening celebration, Managing Director Sales Gerhard Böhm explained the extensive offerings in detail: “Our subsidiary in Taiwan offers high-end technology, pre- and aftersales service, as well as comprehensive expertise. The showroom is not only a presentation forum for current Arburg machine technology, it is also a central point of contact for customer trials. The well-stocked spare-parts store ensures excellent availability and rapid provision. Four comprehensively trained Service technicians are deployed in Taiwan to ensure rapid support at the local level.”

The infrastructure in Taiwan will be expanded in a targeted manner, for example by broader service offerings and application technology consulting. The intention is to ensure that Arburg can offer its customers the same first-class service and support in Taichung for which the company is renowned worldwide.

Böhm added that there are already a number of specialist high-end companies in Taiwan that are already using Arburg plastics technology, specifically in the fields of medical technology, electronics, powder injection moulding (PIM) and LSR processing. “With our technology, our applications and our turnkey solutions, we intend to continue growing, “ he said.
