Herzog expands its North American reach

As first reported here, Herzog systems AG (Flawil, Switzerland) on October 1, 2008 opened a subsidiary, Herzog Injection Technology Inc., with its goal to expand its presence in North America. Michael Viggiano leads the subsidiary from its U.S. HQ in Essex, MA. The shut-off mechanism of Herzog's powered units functions either with a needle or bolt closing system, and is controlled by a pneumatic, hydraulic or, introduced in 2008, an electromagnetic actuator.

Now, the company has expanded its U.S. sales reach by naming its first sales representative company, Thermal Tech Equipment Inc., with the Kansas City, KS-based company now responsible for Herzog's sales in Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and southern Illinois. According to Viggiano, the two are "a perfect fit" with Thermal Tech already supplying a wide range of products for injection molding and extrusion lines including Toshiba molding machines, Novatec dryers, Hosokowa granulators, Tempco heating cartridges and Westland screw and barrels. Herzog's wide range of shut-off nozzles, as well as open filter and mixing nozzles, adds more firepower to Thermal Tech's offerings.

In an email, Viggiano said the addition of Thermal Tech is the first in what will be a series of steps to add sales representation coverage for the entire U.S. —[email protected]
