männer, a Germany headquartered leader in high-precision moldmaking and valve gate hot runner technology, had recently opened production facility in Lawrenceville/Atlanta (USA). Until now, männer's manufacturing operations have been concentrated exclusively in Germany and Switzerland. The decision to open an additional production location in Atlanta reflects the importance of the USA as a prime market, particularly in the area of medical technology - an importance that the USA will retain into the foreseeable future.
Hans-Peter Männer, President and CEO of the manner Group commented, "We have never invested in uncertain assets, but rather always in our own know-how" - a principle that pays off in uncertain times. With 400 employees and annual sales of around 75 million euros, männer is among the leading moldmaking companies and manufacturers of valve gate systems for the medical/pharmaceutical, packaging, and personal care industries. The development of a new production location is coupled with the goal of providing customers with even better and faster service. The result: maintenance work, repairs, replacement parts manufacture, and other services can be carried out quickly and flexibly right on site.
