Munich, 14. December 2006. A festive ceremony marked the delivery of the 100th Krauss-Maffei injection moulding machine to be supplied to WIRTHWEIN AG. The machine, a KM 100-750 CX for Wirthwein's main plant in Creglingen (D), will be used to manufacture various components for automotive customers. "Wirthwein and Krauss-Maffei can look back on a cordial and productive business relationship of many years standing. The power and drive that this company is capable of generating is remarkable, as is its bold approach to adopting new technologies. Wirthwein was one of the first processors in Germany to invest in Krauss-Maffei's newly developed Injection Moulding Compounder (IMC). Again and again, Udo Wirthwein has set himself ambitious goals and we are honoured and delighted to help him achieve them," said Josef Märtl, Krauss-Maffei CEO. Wirthwein has been one of Krauss-Maffei's major customers for over 30 years.
