Körber Schleifring, a global provider of grinding machine technology, and its North American arm, United Grinding Technologies, are now operating under one brand name: United Grinding Group – Körber Solutions. The new group is an amalgamation of eight individual company brands—Mägerle, Blohm, Jung, Studer, Schaudt, Mikrosa, Walter and EWAG—together offering more than 60 products and services, and applications support.
As part of the new branding, United Grinding says it will implement some key projects and strategies involving sales and service, production, engineering, finance and culture. For example, the company says it has defined nine critical industry segments on which it will focus when developing new products and services, in line with customer requirements. These segments include automotive and suppliers, aerospace, transportation and heavy industries, energy, tooling, die and mold, medical, machine manufacturers and precision engineering.
