Mould & Matic expanding in Micheldorf

02 May 2018

Mould & Matic Solutions GmbH, a specialist in tool and plant engineering for the packaging industry, is keeping abreast with the global success of the Kiefel Group and on May 2, 2018, launched the expansion of the site in Micheldorf. Completion is scheduled for May 2019.

Generously proportioned assembly halls for the construction and commissioning of plastics processing machines are being built on a total area of approx. 3,355 m2. Additionally, a new customer center and office space for engineering, international sales and project management will be built and the technology center will be expanded.  

A great deal of importance was placed on an optimal balance of sustainability, energy efficiency and maximum flexibility for the technical building equipment. Therefore, for example, compressed air, cooling water and electricity are supplied through floor channels of the facilities.  

Mould & Matic has belonged to KIEFEL GmbH, Freilassing, since 2016. The newly created assembly areas and the focus on the cup and bottle market segment technologies therefore once again reflect the consistent growth and competence of the automation technology and tool specialists in cooperation with Kiefel as KIEFEL Packaging.  

The core competencies of the company include the development and production of thermoforming and injection moulding tools as well as automation solutions for the production of plastic packaging, which are used not only in the food and cosmetics, but also in the pharmaceutical and medical industries.  

"We are a partner for turnkey solutions and guarantee our customers a comprehensive portfolio of products and services, including tooling, machines and automation solutions", emphasizes Olaf Tanner, managing director and CEO at Mould & Matic. "With its clear focus as a competence center for the cup and bottle business within the Kiefel Group, we are convinced that our customers appreciate this along with our proverbial pioneering spirit."  

Mould & Matic Solutions GmbH has 155 employees in Micheldorf, including 22 apprentices. The expansion allows the number of employees to be increased to 250 over the next few years. As of December 31, 2018, the training places have already been increased to 36 apprentices, resulting in an impressive training quota", according to Manuel Dickinger, managing director and CFO at Mould & Matic. "The new manufacturing capabilities, means that Mould & Matic will continue to provide secure jobs and, as a global technology company, will ensure continuity in the region into the future.“
