Always focused on the future Machine tool manufacturer EMCO celebrates its 75th anniversary

Taking into account that we are looking back on 75 years of history, we have good reason to be proud of our achievements. However, managing director Dr. Stefan Hansch believes that the foundation for further innovations is built upon Emco's wealth of experience. 'Our sites offer comprehensive know-how in the area of turning, milling and training machines. We have succeeded in bundling this knowledge and putting it into practice in the form of turnkey solutions for our customers.'.


Promising order intake at EMCO: The new business year started with a high order backlog. In 2022, machine tool manufacturer EMCO will celebrate its 75th anniversary

2021/22 was a very challenging financial year marked by Corona, supply chain issues and short-time work. Notwithstanding these difficulties, EMCO could close the financial year from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022 with a 24-percent increase in sales, thus recovering the sales level of 2019. We were able to keep our staff in Hallein and are currently looking for new employees to complete our teams in different departments, including Service, Internal Sales, IT etc. From the autumn of 2022, we will also expand our trainee teams, especially those in the area of industrial vocations. Apart from that, we will offer three additional apprenticeships (engineering or mechatronics) for Ukrainian refugees.
