News - transfer of Erlenbach to Hirsch - News

Dear business partner,

The shareholders, Silicium GmbH and Mr. Thorsten Jacoby, have jointly decided to sell the shares of the Erlenbach Group to the Hirsch Servo Group, with headquarters in Glanegg / Austria. With this strategic sale, a machine and mould construction group consisting of about 450 highly qualified employees is created, which secures and expands the future of the technology company, which has been operating successfully for more than 60 years. 

Mr. Thorsten Jacoby, remains Managing Director of Erlenbach GmbH in Lautert and will accompany the further development of the company in this function. The aim is to continue to develop and supply our customers with high-performance systems and the associated service for the processing of particle foams.

"The transfer of Erlenbach to Hirsch is a strategic step to strengthen the future security of the company and to ensure its further development in a strongly changing market environment. This transaction allows us to pool our resources and leverage synergies to further increase our competitiveness. Together, we will combine our strengths and develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of our customers in the future. We are convinced that Hirsch and Erlenbach will be successful together," said Thorsten Jacoby, Managing Director of Erlenbach GmbH.

As technology leaders in the industry, we are setting new standards together. With the union of Hirsch and Erlenbach, we guarantee the best technology, incomparable innovative strength and define an exceptional service standard worldwide. Together we are shaping the future - more efficient, more innovative and more customer-oriented.

The Innovation - EMMotion Vario

This system is characterized by the following outstanding points:

  • existing third-party tools can be used without an additional adapter
  • a spindle lift system adapts the machine to deeper tools by up to 500mm
  • thus, the machine always has a maximum stroke of 1500mm at its disposal, no matter how deep the tooling system is
  • despite the stroke variation, the machine impresses with its compact design
  • the EMMotion Vario can be easily extended by individual up- & downstream automations.
  • an optional freely programmable control system for individual process control rounds off the concept
