Injection molding: Heitec expands to serve larger hot runner market

Heitec’s expansion already is well underway.

Last summer the company celebrated its 20th anniversary and also opened its first sales/service office in Asia. In the months since then hot runner manufacturer Heitec (Burgwald, Germany) has continued to see bright business prospects, and as a result will invest euro 1 million to expand its manufacturing space. The investment, expected to be complete in September, will bring Heitec’s production capacity from 1200 to 1700 sq m. The firm also plans to hire 25 more employees and invest in new manufacturing equipment. Heitec now employs 105, with 12 of these apprentices.

The expansion is to especially support Heitec’s strategic move into the market for larger hot runners. The firm has long specialized in development and manufacturing of smaller hot runners and specialty hot runner systems, but in the past few years has invested in development of larger systems.
