BBG North America Celebrates Anniversary with Record Sales
The North American subsidiary of BBG, the German manufacturer of molds, machinery and systems, celebrates record sales on the occasion of their two-year anniversary. By generating sales in the amount of USD 3 million, BBG North America, Oxford, Michigan, exceeded the target of USD 1.75 million budgeted for 2016 by more than 70%. New customers from the field of automotive glass encapsulation and the growth market Mexico boost the business of this plastics-processing specialist focusing on polyurethane.
Since the beginning of this year, further market development in North America has been managed by Christian Fritz in his role as managing director of the two subsidiaries BBG North America and BBG Asia. "This dual role offers the benefit for me to transfer the experience gathered in building up the business in China. Both companies are of equal size, and it's much easier to create interfaces between the two, allowing synergy effects to be realized faster." Bernhard Satzger, his predecessor, returns to Mindelheim as planned to continue working as sales and project manager.
Since the first 5-axis milling machine was installed at Oxford in November 2014, the machine fleet of BBG North America has been enlarged substantially. Today, products can be manufactured in a similar way in China or at the company’s base in Mindelheim. The plan is to increase the fleet by installing a mold testing rig and an additional 3-axis milling machine. BBG North America sells products "made in the USA" in accordance with German quality standards and a high level of precision. The company produces prototypes and series production tools, takes care of repairs and modifications and integrates graining into molds.
