The Wittmann Group, headquartered in Kottingbrunn, Austria, reported it made considerable progress with numerous investment and building projects in 2022, expanding its production capacity for injection molding machines, as well as boosting its other technologies and services.

The company announced it made investments in ultra-modern machining centres at three production plants and completed extensions at Wittmann Battenfeld in Kottingbrunn, Austria, and Wittmann Robottechnikai Kft. in Mosonmagyarovar, Hungary. The additional floorspace will primarily serve to increase the production capacity for injection molding machines, with the extension of the Hungarian facility also enabling an increase in the production of its Tempro temperature controllers and robots.

Production capacity was also increased with the addition of a new facility in Dilovası, Turkey. The main focus of this plant’s operations will lie in sheet metal and metal processing, and will also include complete products for the Wittmann Group’s range of auxiliaries. Production began in January this year, and will support the operations of the company’s production plants in Austria and France.

Additions to the main building of Wittmann USA Inc in Torrington, Connecticut, USA, expected be completed within the next two months, will provide additional space for automation solutions and complete injection molding cells in future. Another project underway is the building of the Hungarian sales and service organisation Wittmann Robottechnikai Kft. in Törökbálint, near Budapest. Its completion is planned for mid 2023.

Reporting on its financial results for 2022, the group stated a sales figure of €376 million. This was said to be roughly on a par with the previous year and was characterised by a high order intake during the first half of the year. However, issues regarding the supply of purchased parts – in particular, electronic components – prevented the realisation of these sales.

For the current fiscal year, Michael Wittmann, president of the Wittmann Group, stated that he expects an increase in sales of approximately 10%. This estimate was said to be based on the company starting 2023 with a high order backlog, and a market beginning to show signs of improvement in the supply situation.

Wittman concluded, “With our energy-efficient and powerful machines and products, we are in a strong position and can look into the future with optimism.”
