Group uses synergies – Sonnenbühl joins in the attack

When individual divisions of the Kurtz Ersa Group reach their capacity limits due to well-performing business, locations with free capacities naturally help out. “One Team, One Family!” – another example of our corporate culture in action between Ersa and SCHILLER Automation.

When capacity limits are reached, it is important to coordinate requirements and make optimal use of performance capabilities. Fortunately, the order books of Ersa GmbH are well filled despite the generally prevailing political as well as economic crises, so that the Ersa component assembly can use energetic support. The employees of SCHILLER Automation GmbH & Co. KG at the Sonnenbühl site, which has been part of the company for almost a year now, currently have free capacities available in their production. It is clear that they are helping each other. The tin feed and nozzle activation of various Ersa series are now manufactured in Sonnenbühl. Cables are also pre-assembled.

Optimal use of capacities

With its 150 employees, Schiller Automation thus not only strengthens the Automation business unit, but also provides support in other areas of the Group. Other topics, such as the Kurtz Ersa Line Controller for the horizontal and vertical connection of Kurtz Ersa machines to third-party systems, are also developed in the Swabian town of Sonnenbühl and used throughout the Group. In the future, the assembly of the required double crucibles will also take place at SCHILLER Automation. In this way, the capacities in the Kurtz Ersa family will be optimally utilized. As a charming side effect, the business units continue to grow together and will be an even better team with united strength in the future.
