RocTool has announced the opening of a subsidiary facility in Heitershaim, Germany.
RocTool states the opening of the facility will strengthen the company’s presence in the German Plastics Market and German Automotive Sector.
The company explains the opening of the subsidiary accompanies the signing of a strategic partnership with SLG Kunststoff and resources will be shared between the two companies.
The technical centre will benefit from six injection machines ranging from 100 to 1000 tonnes which can accommodate small to large size moulds.
RocTool states the aim of the technical centre is to provide live demonstrations for potential clients interested in RocTool’s innovations and to perform technical trials before production is put in place at German Licensees Premises.
Alexandre Guichard, CEO, RocTool says “Germany is a priority market for us in Europe. We did not have our own resources in this area, however there is a great interest in our technologies as we have discovered at recent German Trade shows. Our new trade centre is larger and well equipped, which should allow us to gain market share in this strategic territory within the key automotive sector.”
