Manner, a German supplier of mould making and valve gate hot runner technologies, has opened a manufacturing operation in the US
Up to now, Manner's manufacturing has been concentrated exclusively in Germany and Switzerland. The decision to open an additional production location in Atlanta reflects the importance of the US as a prime market, particularly in the area of medical devices. "We have never invested in uncertain assets, but rather always in our own know-how – a principle that pays off in uncertain times,” said of Hans-Peter Manner, president and ceo of the Manner Group. With 400 employees and annual sales of around €75m, Manner is among the leading mould making companies and manufacturers of valve gate systems for the pharmaceutical, packaging and personal care industries.
