In November 2020, Jerome Berger officially took over the management of the Austrian Arburg subsidiary from Oliver Giesen, Director for Sales Germany and Austria. This appointment means that Arburg now has a Managing Director in the market who will be able to take care of Austrian customers in the region even more effectively and efficiently. The main hub of operations is and remains the Arburg Technology Center (ATC) in Inzersdorf, Upper Austria.
By appointing a local Managing Director for Austria, Arburg is making a deliberate choice to strengthen its presence in a market which is of importance to the company.
In Jerome Berger, Arburg has found an experienced expert who has completed a technical and economic degree programme. In addition, he possesses extensive experience in machine and plant construction as well as in the field of automation. Over recent months, he has completed an intense period of training ready for his role as Managing Director. He has split his time between Arburg's German headquarters in Lossburg and the Austrian subsidiary in Inzersdorf.
Arburg has had its subsidiary in Austria since 2010 and has been systematically developing and expanding its activities in the country ever since in keeping with its "Wir sind da" brand promise to always be there for its customers. In recent years, the customer base in Austria has grown steadily and the entire Arburg portfolio is in high demand across all industries, including automation solutions, individual turnkey systems and offers related to digitalization. One particular milestone in the development of the Arburg market was the opening of the ATC in Inzersdorf back in March 2018. The choice of location could not have been better: situated in the Upper Austrian region of Kremstal, the ATC is right in the heart of the "Plastic Valley" where a significant number of Austrian plastics processors, institutions and other major industry players are based. Covering an area of around 300 square metres, the ATC provides plenty of space for machinery, spare parts, testing and training. In addition, the Arburg Austria team of sales advisers, application engineers and service technicians is on hand to offer swift, expert assistance at local level.
