Wintec Starting Out in the Americas
Injection Molding Machines also Available in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil
The Wintec machines are developed in Europe and produced in China. The Changzhou production plant is tied into the global quality management of the Engel Group.
Changzhou Plant Doubles Production Area
Founded in 2014, Wintec initially focused its sales on Asia. In recent years, additional markets in the Middle East and Africa were added. The export ratio is currently at 24 percent. In order to now also meet the growing demand in the Americas, WINTEC is starting an extensive expansion of its plant in the fall of this year. The production area will be more than doubled, while at the same time, the number of employees will be increased by more than 60 percent by the end of 2019. The plan is to utilize the additional production area by Q4 of next year. In total, Wintec is investing more than 12.8 million USD (10.5 million euro) into this first large-scale expansion of the plant since it was newly constructed four years ago.
The Wintec teams in the Americas are closely connected to the plant in Changzhou. As President Wintec Americas, Peter Auinger is based in York, PA. He reports to Michael Feltes, the President Sales and Service of Wintec in Changzhou.
