The KraussMaffei Group is celebrating its 175th birthday, having been founded in Munich in March 1838.
Since 1999/2000, the KraussMaffei Group has exclusively manufactured machines and systems for the production and processing of plastics and rubber and also encompasses the KraussMaffei Berstorff and Netstal brands.
Jan Siebert, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of KraussMaffei Group GmbH, said the Group could be proud of its history, stating it had “succeeded in maintaining a leading international position as an innovative mechanical engineering firm in its various fields of activity.”
"We are also renowned for our high level of expertise in technology, processes and applications. That makes us the most valued partner worldwide at the side of our customers,” he said.
The KraussMaffei Group says it is well-equipped to meet the challenges of the future, aiming to strengthen its business activity in its core markets by providing customer support and by offering added value, such as maximising the use of resources by reducing consumption of materials and energy, or increasing efficiency in the production process through the use of automation solutions.
The company states it also aims to step up its presence in growth markets, particularly in the BRIC countries. "The company has always been a driver of innovation,” Siebert continued, adding that the company would be utilising its presence at K 2013 in Dusseldorf to showcase its products and processes for new and growing markets and trends.
“The KraussMaffei Group, with its high quality products and services portfolio as well as its innovation and solution skills, is strongly positioned to meet the challenges that lie ahead to the benefit and advantage of our customers,” Siebert concluded.
