Engel creates unit for planning composite systems

Issue: December 2017
Engel’s Centre for Lightweight Composite Technologies in St. Valentin, Austria

Schwertberg, Austria-based Engel Austria GmbH has created a new business unit, Engel Composite Systems, to assist customers that are planning or launching production systems for making composite components. The company’s Centre for Lightweight Composite Technologies, which was opened in 2012 in nearby St. Valentin, Austria, had been handling project planning for composite systems until demand grew to the point that a dedicated business unit was required.

The new head of the Centre is Norbert Müller, replacing Peter Egger, who is transferring back to the corporate headquarters to become director of advanced technologies.
