ENGEL: Bespoke injection moulding technology from the global market leader

2017.01.31

This Austrian firm has been impressing customers all over the world with the latest technology, cutting-edge production facilities and comprehensive service and support.

It is no wonder that ENGEL machines are considered the Porsches of injection moulding technology. The group provides innovative, complete solutions in-house, and its pioneering R&D for injection moulding machinery has secured its reputation as the global market leader.

The ENGEL Group is constantly expanding into new markets and already has nine factories operating in Europe, Asia and North America, and is present in more than 85 countries. The company, which employs 5,200 staff worldwide, reported a turnover of EUR 1.25 billion in 2015/2016 with an export ratio of some 95%. The company is investing EU 100 million in the current financial year, the majority of which is devoted to extending its facilities in Austria, although manufacturing has also been expanded in China and South Korea. ENGEL is the only western injection moulding machine builder operating in Asia, which is served by its various factories there.

The Austrian company is also engaged in ongoing research to identify the next big leaps forward in injection moulding technology. Although ENGEL machinery has previously only been used to make plastic parts, it has recently become possible to process metal alloys – opening up whole new areas of application in medical technology, aviation and aerospace.

The group’s clients range from automotive manufacturers and toy makers through the packaging sector to mobile phone producers and medical technology specialists. ENGELS‘s technology is protected by some 300 active patents.
