EMCO Changes Hands, Relocates U.S. Office
The EMCO Maier Group is under new ownership, and the turning and milling machine supplier’s U.S. arm, EMCO Maier USA, has relocated from Columbus, Ohio to Novi, Michigan. The Kuhn Group (Salzburg, Austria), a distributor of heavy equipment, purchased the EMCO Maier Group (Hallein, Austria) from A-Tec (Vienna, Austria) in a bidding process that involved five other groups. EMCO says the takeover news was well-received by its 630 employees, and the anticipation is that the new owner will strengthen and support the expansion of its headquarters and help it grow globally in markets including Brazil, Russian and China. Guenther Kuhn, Kuhn Group CEO, says EMCO will help his company diversify into a promising market.
