Arburg has opened its new Arburg Technology Center (ATC) in Micheldorf near Kirchdorf an der Krems, Upper Austria.
The company explains the new location brings the technical centre, spare parts service and training rooms under one roof and is situated in one of Austria’s largest regions for the plastics industry.
According to Arburg, during the opening ceremony, Arburg Managing Partner Juliane Hehl emphasised the importance of the new Austrian ATC for the company. To mark the special occasion, around 100 guests were invited to attend a reception in the Benedictine abbey of Kremsmünster.
“The opening of the ATC in Micheldorf is an important milestone for our presence in Austria,” said Juliane Hehl during the high-profile opening celebrations in the Benedictine abbey of Kremsmünster. “Today’s event is intended to emphasise the significance of customer proximity for our efforts, both in physical and mental terms. Proximity to the customer and customer satisfaction are top priorities for us.”
“The new facilities represent a significant expansion of our services in the areas of technical support, spare parts logistics and training,” added Eberhard Lutz, Managing Director Arburg Austria. “The new ATC in Micheldorf provides a central focal point and ensures that customers in Austria always have a direct line to us. They can contact us with questions about our technology or training courses, or place orders for spare parts for fast delivery. The technical centre lies at the heart of our service, enabling customers not only to see the latest machine technology at first hand, but also, crucially, to prototype their moulds. In addition, the demonstration room is the ideal place for providing practical training in all aspects of Arburg technology here in Austria.”
