Engel, the Schwertberg, Austria-based manufacturer of injection moulding machines, has celebrated 25 years of close partnership with Laupen, Switzerland-based SKS. SKS specialises in high-precision small components, such as gears, made of high-performance materials.
Dr Peter Neumann, CEO of Engel, thanked the two entrepreneurs Karl and Michael Steiner for the relationship during the pair’s visit to the Engel facilities in Schwertberg: “The cooperation with SKS is something special for us.”
“SKS, just like Engel, is strongly innovative and has the courage to take new paths with its partners again and again. Thus we have already worked together to develop several advancements, and the Steiner family has always been open with their feedback. It is precisely this kind of close and honest cooperation that is an important pillar of success for medium-sized companies in Western Europe like us,” added Neumann.
SKS says it will take three new Engel machines into operation this year including an Engel e-motion 30 TL.
