Our success story continues

We place the first major order for 9 IMT model W20-T4 lathes with Otto Fuchs Metallwerke, Meinerzhagen.

Machine sales for IMT in China are actively supported by D+S; this market has great potential.

Additional orders may be generated by Fundo in Norway.

Austria Aluguss in Ranshofen/Austria is taken over by the Borbet Group.

As representatives of IMT, we can place a large order for W 20-T4 lathes for the new factory in Ranshofen (with a considerable increase in capacity).
