The Client:

The EMCO Group, headquartered in Hallein near Salzburg, has become one of the leading machine tool manufacturers in Europe, producing high-quality turning and milling machines in Austria, Italy and Germany. The group employs approximately 630 people with annual sales of around EUR 160 million. Until December 2011, the group belonged to the insolvent A-TEC Group and was acquired by Salzburger Kuhn-Holding-GmbH in the course of the sale of the subgroups. In recent years, the EMCO Group has been able to further expand its international market position and can look back on very successful financial years.
