"With the integrated production center at the Porta Westfalica site, we will improve our manufacturing processes, reduce throughput times and accelerate our commissioning processes. This will enable us to supply our customers even faster and with even higher quality in future," explains Robert Gruss, CEO of the Topwerk Group. "The creation of a central warehouse will also ensure the availability of materials and spare parts and thus faster response times. This is an important step for us and our customers worldwide and supports the global growth of the group".
The locations of SR Schindler in Regensburg and Prinzing-Pfeiffer in Aarbergen and Blaubeuren, together with their core competencies, will both remain. Additional investments will be made in sales, service, the product portfolio, engineering and especially in processes & digitalization.
Great advantages for the future
Bernward Reif, managing director of Prinzing-Pfeiffer, sees great advantages for the future: "Now we can concentrate on our core competencies of design, development, sales and services at the locations. This will help us to develop stronger customer relationships and further expand our market share".

The employee representatives of the sites concerned were involved in the project at an early stage. "We would like to thank the employee representatives for the extremely constructive and cooperative discussions in which we agreed a balanced reconciliation of interests and social plan," says Robert Gruss.
The merger has already been implemented to a high degree and is an important part of the strategy of further developing the product houses and further improving the focus on our customers.
