Berndorf AG set to expand in Europe and the USA

19. April 2017

The Austrian experts in metal processing, tool manufacturing and mechanical engineering continued to expand their presence in the Czech Republic, Germany and the USA in 2016.

Berndorf AG recorded their greatest surge in growth for 8 years in 2016, and their subsidiaries have reinforced the group’s global presence in their respective niche markets with purchases in the automotive, heat treatment and quality wire production sectors and in steel belt manufacturing for the laminate industry.

In the Czech Republic, stoba Präzisionstechnik, Berndorf’s largest automotive company, took over a factory in Brno to manufacture precision mechanical components for vehicle fuel injection systems, and Berndorf Band, a steel belt producer with a global footprint, used an asset deal in Germany to secure facilities and technical expertise for producing structured steel belt for the laminate manufacturing industry.

The subsidiary companies Aichelin and Pengg have been principally responsible for new group commitments in the USA, with Aichelin acquiring the Atmosphere Group, a leading market provider of industrial heat treatment solutions, while Joh. Pengg AG from Styria has joined forces with the American Spring Wire Corp. to produce top-quality special wiring for the North American market.

The Berndorf Group’s international sales account for more than 90% of the concern’s turnover. The group is represented in more than 20 countries by 70 subsidiaries, and its approximately 2,850 employees recently increased its sales from EUR 553 to 590 million.
