In order to meet the growing demand, Wintec is enlarging its production plant in Changzhou, China. "The production area will be more than doubled, and by the end of 2019 the number of employees in production alone will increase by 60 percent", reports Michael Feltes, President Sales and Service of Wintec, at the beginning of the Chinaplas plastics trade fair, end of April in Shanghai, China. Construction work is expected to commence in the autumn of this year. The plan is to already use the additional area by the fourth quarter of the coming year. Altogether, Wintec is investing more than 10 million euro into the first big expansion of the site since the company was established four years ago.

Since 2014, Wintec has been building high-quality, reliable and long-lasting injection moulding machines for standard applications. Initially, the machines were only available in Asia, however, in the past years further markets in the Middle East as well as South Africa have been added. In May of this year, Wintec is expanding its sales to the US, Canadian, Mexican and Brazilian markets. "Moving into America is a huge step for our entire team", says Feltes. "We are very well equipped for it, have already set up a strong sales structure in America and the colleagues there are well-connected to Changzhou." Peter Auinger has taken on sales and service management for the Americas. He has been with Wintec from the beginning and established sales in China during the initial years.

As a member of the Engel Group, Wintec is in a position to deliver automated production cells with robots developed and produced within the group of companies.
