The production plant of the German WITTE Automotive group, newly opened in Ostrov / Northern Bohemia in 2016, specializes in the production of car door handles and locking modules in cooperation with the Nejdek plant 20 km away. Its current annual production amounts to approximately 3.5 million units. For this purpose, 14 WITTMANN BATTENFELD injection molding cells are running in Ostrov. About one million of the handles produced are manufactured as hollow parts, using WITTMANN BATTENFELD AIRMOULD® gas injection technology.
“Due to our position in the just-in-time supply chain of the automobile manufacturers, we are absolutely dependant on permanently reliable production equipment. Here we have always been able to bank on WITTMANN BATTENFELD injection molding technology.”
