K2013: Wittmann boosts capacity, shows broad product line

Forecast 2013 sales for the Wittmann Group are $375 million, in line with 2012 revenues, as the company reports particularly strong sales from the United States and Mexico, General Manager Michael Wittmann said in a press conference at K2013.

Turnover in North America is projected at $95 million this year. That's sure to grow in coming years due to an expansion of the Wittmann Battenfeld MacroPower injection molding machine line in Torrington, CT. The company has also established a new location in El Paso, TX to serve the Mexican Maquiladoras manufacturing area.

Business highlights mentioned by Wittmann included:

Limitations and longer delivery times due to construction activities;
Especially strong interest in HM ServoPower, MacroPower and MacroPower multicomponent and medium-sized machines; and
Very good order situation with robots and peripheral equipment.
