“Southeast Asia is a strategically very crucial region for us. Establishing a UNITED GRINDING subsidiary is the logical step to intensify our activities in this region,” explains Stephan Nell, CEO of the UNITED GRINDING Group. The potential is high, and the number of customers is continuously increasing. “Proximity to our customers has always been important to us to ensure fast and uncomplicated support,” adds Nell. The ability to offer the group’s bundled technology and application know-how from a single subsidiary offers customers many advantages.
