Expansion Arburg opens new technology centre in France
The Arburg subsidiary in France officially opened its new building on 14 September 2002 in Tremblay-en-France. The subsidiary in France is the company’s oldest foreign location.
The new Arburg Technology Center in the industrial park in Tremblay-en-France in the Paris area has a floor space of over 1,500 m2, and is thus around 40 percent larger than the previous location in Aulnay-sous-Bois. With an area of over 400 m2, the showroom has space — depending on machine size — for up to four Allrounder injection moulding machines and for Freeformers. “We can show a representative cross-section of the Arburg portfolio here,” explained Managing Partner Renate Keinath. The machines are available for tests with customer moulds, as well as for training purposes. There are two training rooms, measuring over 100 m2, for the theory part of the courses.
The foundation stone for Arburg's international sales and service network was laid in 1985 with the foundation of the subsidiary in France. Today, the team in France comprises 26 employees, 15 of whom work in the Service division alone. As well as on-site service technician deployments, their tasks also include hotline support, the provision of spare parts, application technology advice and customer training. In addition, the subsidiary also supports customers in Morocco and Tunisia.
