ENGEL in Shanghai has prepared for continuing growth. The new office building and the new production hall were opened in September of 2017.
ENGEL in Shanghai has prepared for continuing growth. The new office building and the new production hall were opened in September of 2017.

At the end of March, ENGEL concluded the financial year of 2017/18 with revenues of 1.51 billion, an increase of 11% versus the previous year.

As compared to the previous year, there has been a slight shift in the distribution of the 1.51 billion in worldwide revenue. America has increased by 2%, to 26%. With currently 53%, Europe still represents the lion's share. Asia is at 20 %.

The production plant in Shanghai alone sold around 20% more machines in the 2017/18 financial year. The Asian markets continue to have a large share in the success of the ENGEL Group, with demand especially increasing in China. The investment climate in China is at a new high.

Driving forces for growth: automotive and medical industries

Gero Willmeroth, President Sales and Service at ENGEL Machinery Shanghai. "The automotive industry in China continues to be the most important driver of growth and innovation", emphasised Gero Willmeroth, President Sales and Service, ENGEL Machinery Shanghai on the Media Day of CHINAPLAS 2018.

ENGEL in particular has grown disproportionately in the automotive lighting area. "Our customers are increasing their investment into innovative process technologies that allow them to achieve higher efficiency, productivity and quality", added Willmeroth.

One example of this is the optimelt technology, which ENGEL presented at the booth at CHINAPLAS 2018. In the manufacturing of thick-walled LED lenses, the patented multi-layer process with external cooling significantly reduces the cycle time, at the same time ensuring a high degree of optical quality.

As introduced, electric vehicles in China are on the rise and accompanied by innovative lightweight technologies. Until now, the focus of processors in China has been on substituting glass on the one hand and foam injection moulding on the other hand; composite technologies are still in the early stages.

In addition to automotive, ENGEL in Asia has increased its sales in the medical area, with health care and diagnostics being the main growth drivers. For these applications, ENGEL delivers all-electric e-motion injection moulding machines, as well as hybrid machines of the e-victory series, which are produced for the Asian markets at the ENGEL plant in Korea.

"In the medical area, we are seeing a trend to multi-cavity moulds, which require larger injection moulding machines to increase throughput", reported Willmeroth.

More capacity in the machine plants

With the largest investment programme in the company's history, ENGEL ensures that the growth of the company extends into all regions of the world. For a total of more than 375 million, by 2020 production plants worldwide will be modernised and their capacities expanded.

The expansion of ENGEL Machinery Shanghai was completed in time for the ten-year anniversary of the plant in September 2017. A new production hall was constructed, complementing large machine production by 1,600 square metres. For the apprentice workshop alone, ENGEL invested just under 1 million.

In the summer of 2017, the large machine plant in St. Valentin, Austria, put a new additional production hall into operation.

Moreover, the largest construction projects are taking place in Austria. At the company’s headquarter in Schwertberg, the northern production hall will be expanded by 11,500 square metres by the autumn of this year.A new, significantly larger customer technology centre is also being built. 

With an investment volume of 160 million, the expansion of the large machine plant in St. Valentin, Austria, is by far the largest construction project. In the first stage, an additional hall bay was constructed last year. More space will also be created for the Center for Lightweight Composite Technologies.
