Engel Holding GmbH has added an additional assembly hall to its main base in Schwertberg – the development follows an extension to the site some 18 months.

In the past two years the company has invested 50 million euros to expand and modernize its Austrian plants in Schwertberg, St. Valentin and Dietach – an investment that was driven by customer demand.

"The volume of our orders is going up around the world, so we have to address this expansion by continuing to invest in our sites," said Peter Neumann, chief executive of Engel.

Every year, the production facility in Schwertberg produces more than 2,000 injection molding machines – and the number is rising, the company said in a statement. For some time now, there has been a shortage of machine spaces for client acceptance on the site, it added.

In particular, large injection molding machines have had to be transported to the St. Valentin plant for initial start-up but thanks to the new building, sufficient spaces are now available at the plant.

Designed for machines weighing up to 40 tons, the new assembly hall also addresses the trend towards larger injection molding machines.
