Wintec to Start Sales in America
Engel Group Company Expanding Distribution
Since 2014, Wintec, an Engel group company based in Changzhou, China, has produced high-quality injection molding machines for standard applications. With sales commencing in May, 2018, Wintec is now expanding its distribution into the US, Canadian, Mexican, and Brazilian markets. At the NPE2018 plastics trade fair from May 7 to 11 in Orlando, FL/USA, Wintec will introduce itself to the American public for the first time.
"In addition to sophisticated applications that require tailor-made injection molding solutions, we see a strong demand in America for injection molding machines that handle standard applications", says Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group. Wintec machines are preferably used for high-volume, single-component injection molding, which may not require any special technologies, yet still places high demands on quality and process consistency. Machines are delivered preconfigured, which guarantees short delivery times and speedy start-up.
The Wintec machines are designed and developed in Europe and produced in China. Opened in 2014, the Changzhou plant is tied into the global quality management of the Engel Group. "Wintec operates with the same strict quality standards as all the Engel plants worldwide", emphasizes Peter Auinger, Wintec President Americas, who is taking on the responsibility for sales and service in America. Auinger has been with Wintec from the beginning, built up the sales in China, and very successfully established the brand in Asia. Prior to his time in China, he managed the sales and service Engel subsidiary in Mexico.
