“Committed employees, modern, high-performance manufacturing equipment and state-of-the-art production technologies are key to ensuring that Schubert Fertigungstechnik can produce series and individual parts at competitive prices,” highlights Manfred Grieser who has been working with the company for over 40 years. In 1968, he began his training as a mechanic there. In 1973, he became responsible for work preparation, planning and organisation. Since 2003, he has been the company’s Managing Director and co-shareholder.
Since January 2016, series parts for Schubert packaging systems, such as F3 housings, robotic arms, lids and gearboxes have been manufactured at the new four-axis DMC 80H 2016 machining centre. In addition to its 19 existing pallet positions, the new machining centre has twelve more storage positions – and therefore further capacity to meet increasing order volumes. The investment of 950,000 euros strengthens Schubert Fertigungstechnik’s competitiveness – also thanks to reduced retooling costs. The purchase is an investment in the future of the entire group of companies.
