Mechanical and Plant engineering

Mechanical and Plant engineering

Mechanical and Plant engineering is an industry with a multitude of very different technologies and business characteristics. In these markets, mechanical solutions are increasingly often combined with electronics and IT.

Our expertise ranges from components and systems to large-scale plants, from drive technology to material handling, from agricultural and construction machinery to wind turbines, from water treatment to mining.
