Arburg acquires AMK’s Drives and Automation division

Arburg acquires AMK’s Drives and Automation divisionEarlier this month, Arburg’s ‘entrepreneurial families’ Hehl and Keinath acquired AMK Arnold Müller GmbH & Co KG, along with its Drives & Automation division. The company will operate under the new name of AMKmotion GmbH & Co KG.

The AMK Group, which is based in Kirchheim unter Teck, is an international leader in electric drive technology, control technology, industrial automation engineering, and the automotive sectors.

AMK has worked closely with Arburg as a development partner in electric drive systems for more than two decades — an arrangement that has contributed significantly to the success of the electric Allrounder injection moulding machines.

The AMK Group is divided into two divisions. The product portfolio of the Drives & Automation division, which previously belonged to AMK Arnold Müller GmbH & Co KG, includes motors, centralised and decentralised drive solutions, and control systems.

The automotive division of AMK Automotive GmbH & Co KG manufactures items such as air suspension compressors, air suspension systems, and power steering drives. In 2016, the family-owned company from southern Germany was sold with its two divisions to Chinese investor Zhongding Holding Europe GmbH.

However, the Chinese owner’s ‘desire for strategic change’ presented the entrepreneurial families Hehl and Keinath with the opportunity to take over the Drives & Automation division with AMK Arnold Müller GmbH & Co KG.

Michael Hehl, managing partner and spokesman of the Arburg management board, said: “We are very confident about this important acquisition. It underlines the importance of electric injection moulding machines, whose share in our portfolio has been growing steadily for years and still has plenty of potential for the future.”
