In the mid-term Engel will be discontinuing mould production at the Schwertberg facility, but establishing cooperation with strategic technology partners in relevant special application fields. Emphasis will be placed on mold project planning.
The highly-qualified staff in mold building will be kept on and assigned new tasks in machine construction and mold project planning.
