Established in 1990, Arburg Inc. has been based in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, since 2015. Due to the magnitude and importance of the U.S. market — North America being Arburg’s largest foreign market — the company has three locations. The headquarters in the East are being joined by the Technology Centers in Elgin, Illinois, and Irvine, California, which serve our customers in the Midwest and on the West Coast. In total, Arburg has more than 100 people working towards its success in North America.

Martin Baumann has now been chosen to lead the US subsidiary as CEO. He possesses in-depth knowledge of the plastics sector, as well as several years of management, sales and project experience for various companies in the United States.

Baumann completed his academic qualifications at the Aalen University of Applied Sciences — Engineering and Economics — in 1991, achieving a Bachelor’s degree in Plastics Technology, followed by an MBA in International Marketing at the Export Academy in Reutlingen in 1993.

Most recently, Baumann was engaged for almost four years as Vice President and General Manager at MAAG Group Americas in Eagle Rock, Virginia, a manufacturer of gear pumps, granulation and filtration systems, and powder mills.

He describes himself as a “business and general manager with a focus on developing and implementing growth strategies for complex industrial products in the B2B environment.” Starting in June this year, Baumann will undergo an intensive familiarization program in the U.S. in close cooperation with the headquarters in Lossburg to prepare him for his new challenges. “I feel greatly honoured to be part of the Arburg family and I look forward to making my contribution towards ensuring that our customers can produce their plastic parts efficiently, the key to commercial success, with our high-end technology”, states Martin Baumann.

Some 23 years ago, Friedrich Kanz set up the Arburg subsidiary in the USA and progressively transformed it into one of the company’s most important and biggest support bases worldwide — with great success. Over the years, he moved Arburg and its products closer to customers by opening Arburg Technology Centers (ATC) in Illinois and California, purposefully expanded service capabilities in the U.S. and Canada. He was also instrumental in planning, implementing and expanding the subsidiary’s premises in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, which became home to the company in 2015. Over 13,000 Allrounder injection moulding machines installed in the USA, Canada and the Mexican border region are testimony to the North American market’s huge importance for Arburg.
