The Wittmann Group, headquartered in Vienna, Austria, a leader in the production of injection moulding machines, robots and peripheral equipment for the industry, has announced that it will merge its two main divisions – Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH & Co. KG, Meinerzhagen, Germany, and Wittmann Robot Systeme GmbH, Nuremberg, Germany – into a single company. The merged company will trade as Wittmann Battenfeld Deutschland GmbH and be headquartered in Nuremberg.
According to Wittmann, the merger of the two companies is intended to create a “united and coordinated presence of the Wittmann Group in the German market,” and aims to provide more efficient customer support.
