Wittmann Battenfeld launches big expansion in Torrington, CT

June 12, 2013

Austrian plastics machinery giant expanding on both sides of the Atlantic  

Due to considerable growth in all business areas, Wittmann Battenfeld is not only expanding space at its Austrian headquarters, but also at its US subsidiary in Torrington, CT. The 20,200-square-foot expansion of the Connecticut plant will equal an investment of USD 2.4 million to create more space and accommodate larger-tonnage injection molding machines. The space increase will also allow them to showcase the full-service aspect that Wittmann Battenfeld provides to their customers. President David Preusse also announced additional hiring plans for the Torrington plant, which currently employs a staff of 125.

Wittmann, a global manufacturer of robots and automation equipment for the plastics industry, took over the Austrian injection molding machine maker Battenfeld in April 2008, making it the first company in the world to offer a fully-integrated product range for injection molding. Headquartered in Vienna, Austria, Wittmann Battenfeld has operations in more than 25 countries including a US subsidiary in Connecticut.
