in India

Pöttmes. The automation company TAKTOMAT is growing worldwide.

Due to the successful development and the enormous demand for innovative automation components, the current location in Pöttmes on Rudolf-Diesel-Straße is bursting at the seams.


TAKTOMAT Managing Director Norbert Hofstetter during a visit to the Bavarian economy minister Franz Josef Pschierer in his company: "We urgently need additional capacities due to new orders and important challenges in the area of ​​digitization. That's why we're investing in expansion. "

In Pöttmes, near the current location, a new three-storey technology center will be build on almost 25,000 square meters. The plan is for office space of around 1,500 square meters and a production hall of around 5,000 square meters. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place punctually next year to celebrate the 30th anniversary. Another major growth driver for TAKTOMAT is its further internationalization. In the future, the leading manufacturer of sophisticated handling and drive technology for the automation industry will also be represented in India.

After a period of comprehensive reform, the country expects an economic upturn. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to increase by 7.4 percent. In addition to sales offices in Germany, the TAKTOMAT group of companies now has a presence in Finland, Spain, Hungary, the USA, China, South Korea, Brazil, Turkey and Malaysia. In China, TAKTOMAT works with, among others, the Apple supplier Foxconn. In São Paulo, Brazil, a new branch is being built including production. In the near future, new markets in Scandinavia will increasingly be tapped.

In fast-growing world markets, TAKTOMAT sees itself in a very good position, as Norbert Hofstetter explains: "Our credo are innovative ideas, visionary thinking and creative passion. High labor costs, the zero defect strategy, the increase in productivity as well as the relieving of people from heavy physical or monotonous work ensure increasing automation. For practical implementation, the globally successful TAKTOMAT Group from Pöttmes develops and manufactures innovative, precise and high-quality products and solutions for the automation industry with the also family-owned company c-tec Zerspanungs- und Fertigungstechnik from Augsburg.

Thanks to its high level of technological expertise, many years of experience and customer proximity, the owner-managed family business founded in 1989 advanced to become one of the world's leading manufacturers for the automation industry. The extensive portfolio includes rotary indexing tables, disc curve indexing gear units and transfer devices as well as linear timing systems. The TAKTOMAT products assert themselves on the world market by robust construction, short switching times, high cycle intervals, highest reliability and absolute precision.

"The future belongs to automation," says founder and managing director Norbert Hofstetter, "because the growing complexity of products and production processes combined with increasing competitive pressure are increasingly presenting companies with enormous challenges.
