Kautex Maschinenbau Managing Partner Andreas Lichtenauer said the company finished 2016 on a high with record sales figures.
He puts this success down to a proactive service policy, a fast ongoing decentralization and with this a better understanding of customer requirements.
Kautex is now in the process of expanding its Bonn, Germany production location to meet rising demand. From 2017 third quarter, a new 3,900sqm assembly hall will primarily be dedicated to assembling KBB packaging machines and KSB suction blow molding machines.
The company also plans to establish a Russian limited liability company in Moscow and a spare parts warehouse in St. Petersburg. Kautex said it will optimize the supply processes for the Russian market from spring 2017 and ensure that spare parts can be offered in the national currency.
