Wittmann Battenfeld: Open House

Wittmann Battenfeld celebrated its Open House days in Vienna, Austria: attracting a record audience of over 500 worldwide representatives, customers and press to the unveiling of several new machines and production solutions – and issuing a promise that the future looks bright and that increased market share is a clear and attainable goal.

Founder Dr Werner Wittmann acknowledged that 2009 had been a difficult year for all in the industry but that all the signs were set for a strong Wittmann group recovery through 2010. Battenfeld managing director George Tinschert confirmed the revival in some detail. “We see the market coming back,” adding that sales figures were some 90% increased year-on-year for Q1 2010. Tinschert estimates that the group currently holds some 6.12% of the European injection molding machinery market share and he said that Wittmann Battenfeld envisaged reaching a 10% share of that market within three years. They expects company turnover for 2010 to be of the order of 200 million EUR– up 50 million EUR on last year.

Wittmann Battenfeld insist on providing superior design and performance at the lower possible production costs – hence its production sites in the Far East, and Eastern Europe as well as Germany, Austria and France. A good number of the new EcoPower Battenfeld molding machines will be manufactured at the Wittmann Battenfeld Hungarian site.
