Engel Founds Company for Pre-owned Machines

Portfolio Extended

The foundation of Engel Used Machinery s.r.o. sees injection moulding machine manufacturer and systems solutions provider Engel, headquartered in Schwertberg, Austria, extend its portfolio to include pre-owned machines. With Engel as their full service provider, customers benefit from comprehensive advice from a single source.

Besides injection moulding machines, the new company also buys back used robots from the Engel series, refurbishes the products and puts them back on the market for sale. "In some cases, a second-hand production cell is the only option. We want to offer our customers a high-quality solution for this requirement, too, with Engel's customary consulting expertise and outstanding service", says Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group, explaining this strategic decision. The repurchased injection moulding machines and robots are reconditioned in-house. Engel has created the capacities required for this at its production plants in Austria and the Czech Republic.

The newly founded company is headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic. "Eastern Europe is the largest and fastest growing market for pre-owned injection moulding machines", says Leopold Praher, General Manager of Engel Used Machinery.

Leopold Praher has been with Engel for more than 30 years, most recently as Sales Manager Elast/LIM with responsibility for Engel's global elastomer and thermoset business. Praher will initially fill both roles in order to prepare the Elast/LIM division, which is strategically important for Engel, in the best possible way for an orderly succession.
