ALPEN-MAYKESTAG on course for growth

24. November 2015

The Austrian manufacturers of high-quality drilling and milling tools continue to expand their international operations and are intensifying their focus on future markets.

The Austrian company ALPEN-MAYKESTAG is proof positive that drills and precision tools can be high-tech instruments and anything but diminutive. With more than 300 staff at three production sites, the family-run firm manufactures 135,000 tools of the highest quality daily. Their product range comprises 16,000 items, including tools with diameters of between 0.4mm and 8cm and up to a metre in length. Many products are created in close cooperation with clients, making them wholly bespoke and individually adapted to the customers’ production processes.

The products manufactured include drilling tools of every size and for every purpose (e.g. metal, stone, tiles, wood, glass and special applications), and they also develop and produce top-quality solid carbide and HSS (High Speed Steel) machining tools. Their international clientele is drawn from the automobile and aviation industry, medical and measuring technology, and the skiing industry; the client list includes the likes of the ski manufacturer Atomic, the Swarovski crystal company and the Formula 1 racing teams Red Bull and Williams.

ALPEN-MAYKESTAG delivers to over 70 countries. Its main export markets in Europe are Germany, the UK, Scandinavia and France, but it also distributes to South Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. Potential for growth is especially anticipated in South America, where ALPEN-MAYKESTAG is already the market leader in Chile and Peru. The company’s export rate is 80 %.
