New Injection Moulding Machine for Dressel + Höfner – Business Operations will be continued

13 May 2016 · Neustadt bei Coburg/Bayreuth · Business Area Insolvency Administration

Dressel + Höfner GmbH & Co. KG has taken delivery of a new injection moulding machine from the manufacturer Krauss-Maffei. The machine was installed directly after delivery and now makes it possible to process different materials needed for one component at the same time. Moreover, it is capable of producing heavier parts and uses the latest generation of software, which allows even more precise injection moulding. The machine is used to manufacture such car parts as door panels and centre consoles. Purchasing the machine was the company’s reaction to an increase in demand. The company already has a large number of orders requiring the use of the machine.

Dressel + Höfner GmbH & Co. KG is a member of the Hock Group, which filed for the insolvency of their eight group companies last week. The Local Court of Coburg appointed the restructuring expert Mr. Stephan Ammann from PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH as the provisional insolvency administrator of Dressel + Höfner.

“I am delighted that we have succeeded in achieving a smooth transition of the business processes in an initial step. All the deliveries to customers will be made on time. Funding for the company is ensured. Moreover, the new injection moulding machine will enable the company to produce at the highest technical level, which our customers will benefit from. We will find a long-term solution for this company, which is actually healthy,” commented Stephan Ammann, attorney and tax consultant.

The internationally operating Hock Group has been supplying the car and electrical industry for more than 65 years. With a total of approximately 900 employees, the group mainly produces tin and plastic parts as well as metal parts using powder injection moulding for renowned customers. The company is well known in the sector for its high level of quality and for the know-how of its staff.
