Curtiss-Wright Corp. announced that its Industrial division has opened a new office near Munich to provide sales & technical support and customer service to its OEM customers and distributors in Europe.
The move follows Curtiss-Wright’s recent acquisitions of Arens Controls, PG Drives Technology and Williams Controls; and the merging of its existing Penny + Giles business into a newly formed Industrial group. Together, these four businesses represent four powerful brands in the Industrial marketplace.
As a result of the mergers, Curtiss-Wright has consolidated its existing offices in Germany and moved to larger premises in Garching near Munich. The move will provide a more efficient administration process and service, with new orders being placed directly with Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division in the UK. Orders will also be dispatched directly to customers from the company’s manufacturing facilities in the UK and US.
In addition, Curtiss-Wright can also increase its offering to incorporate products from all four brands, including by-wire shift controls, electronic throttle pedals, joystick controllers, motor control systems, power electronics and sensors for industrial, commercial and mobility vehicles.
Commenting for Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division, Senior Vice President & General Manager Kevin Rayment says: “Europe continues to be a key and developing market for the company and we believe there is a real opportunity for products from all four brands to enter new markets. We are also sure that these operational changes will benefit customers and distributors alike.”
