The new extension at the Arburg subsidiary in Brno, Czech Republic, was officially opened in the presence of Arburg Partners Eugen, Juliane and Michael Hehl on 21 April 2015.

Area dedicated entirely to Freeformer and additive manufacturing
There will now be a separate area dedicated entirely to the Freeformer and additive manufacturing at Arburg’s Czech subsidiary. Since the beginning of the year, this has been under the management of Dr Daniel Orel, who has played a key role in promoting the establishment and expansion of the automation sector since the retirement of longstanding subsidiary manager Jaroslav Novak at the end of 2014, after 22 years of service.
Automation sector enjoys annual growth of between 10 and 15 per cent
In his speech, Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and Spokesperson for the Arburg Management Team, explained how the Czech and Slovak market had developed in recent years and highlighted the continuously rising demand in the automation sector. “Annual growth rates here are between 10 and 15 percent. Of the total of 34 employees, five are exclusively responsible for automation solutions and specific turnkey systems. The addition of five more is planned in the near future.”
