Technology & Innovation

As a former trial foundry for Bühler AG, innovation and constant improvement in processes are of utmost importance to us. Customer proximity is not just shown in quality or technology but is a basic prerequisite for us. We always strive for solutions that offer additional value to our customers technically, logistically as well as in monetary terms.
