The EDAG Group, an independent, globally leading engineering service provider, is expanding its international network with two locations in Austria. EDAG Austria GmbH has been operating at the Steyr and Neustift sites since December 2023 and offers a wide range of services in the field of vehicle development and robotics.
"As an engineering partner, it is important to us to be close to our customers and to offer them decisive engineering expertise on site as an innovative partner," explains Harald Keller, COO of EDAG Engineering GmbH. "We are now further expanding this expertise at the Austrian sites - both in the comprehensive development of vehicles and smart factories."
The site in St. Ulrich near Steyr, which has been under construction since last fall, focuses on commercial vehicle development. The employees of this traditional automotive region have many years of experience in the areas of project management, complete vehicle development and CAD design. The portfolio ranges from trucks and buses to light commercial vehicles. Planning and implementing special customer requests and special vehicles are also part of the team's expertise in Upper Austria.
Markus Mekina, Managing Director of EDAG Austria GmbH, is positive about the tasks ahead: "The mobility industry is subject to constant change and the current environment presents exciting challenges. In this context, we see opportunities for growth and innovation. Our passion for advanced engineering and future-oriented technologies is reflected in the development of customized concepts."
"By integrating the second location in Neustift im Mühlkreis, we have successfully extended the long-standing portfolio of EDAG Production Solutions in the field of 'Smart Factory'," emphasizes Michael Brugger, Vice President Digitalization Smart Factory and Board Member of EDAG Austria GmbH.
"Modern networked production is characterized by maximum efficiency. This allows our customers to produce high-quality products while at the same time improving their competitiveness. With our expertise in product and production development, we accompany our customers on the way from the initial smart factory concept to implementation and support for the operation of internationally networked production facilities."
The site in Neustift offers an answer to the challenges of automated production in the form of robotics, simulation, PLC programming, virtual commissioning and control cabinet construction: For example, by offering an adaptable robot box with the product name "MicBotX". It is a modular and versatile robotic unit for flexible integration into the production process. It allows for a wide range of application configurations and adapts flexibly to various requirements in the production process. Possible applications include pick & place, component assembly or sorting. This way, it is possible to optimize the adaptation to automatable processes in a customer's value stream chain.
With the team in Austria, the EDAG Group strengthens its portfolio and range of services in the field of commercial vehicles and industrial engineering and reinforces its global strategy of holistic development of products and production facilities.
