The office and production site will remain in St. Konrad, Austria. Mr. Aitzetm├╝ller will direct the operational man- agement for a defined time period to ensure a smooth integration. Automation solutions have been and are still a constant companion when it comes to a purchasing decision of a Millturn machine, WFL says.

With the takeover of Frai Elektromaschinenbau GmbH, we see the ideal opportunity for this solution," says Norbert Jungreithmayr, CEO of WFL Millturn Tech- nologies. WFL and Frai are already connected through a long-standing partnership in the area of automation solutions. | WFL Millturn Technologies Inc. - USA 248-347-9390 Hirschmann Engineering Appoints President and CEO Hirschmann Engineering USA Inc. has transferred the role of president and CEO to Max Golter.
