HAIDLMAIR increases its presence in the North American market

HAIDLMAIR GmbH Werkzeugbau, founded in 1979, is the main plant in a group of companies with ten production facilities in six countries. HAIDLMAIR is the leading manufacturer of injection molds for the reusable packaging industry. 

Since 2012 the HAIDLMAIR group has had a service center in the USA. In addition, Kurt Blechner, Sales HAIDLMAIR LLC, is present domestically to serve the North American customer. 

To serve local customers even better, Mario Haidlmair and his team have been searching for a manufacturing facility in Canada and the U.S.. Eventually they were successful in Toronto.

HAIDLMAIR has assumed a majority interest in Tesan Mould, a family business with a long tradition in manufacturing high quality tools just like the HAIDLMAIR plant in Nußbach, Austria. The Tesan family continues to own a significant percentage of the company shares and will continue to manage the company with Lucas Tesan as the General Manager. The company will be integrated into the HAIDLMAIR GROUP and renamed HAIDLMAIR North America. All activities in North America will be out of this location to best serve the customer.

For Mario Haidlmair the decision to have a manufacturing facility in North America was an easy one:“We very much enjoy working with our local American customers because their philosophy of high tech thinking, their enthusiasm for investing, and their constant quest for innovation fits very well with the HAIDLMAIR philosophy.“ Lucas Tesan, the new and old GM, is on the same page: “We are proud to be part of the successful HAIDLMAIR GROUP and we are well aware of the responsibility that comes with that.”
