JUKI Automation Systems centralizes functions at German location Nuremberg
JUKI Automation Systems, a worldwide leading supplier in SMT assembly equipment and total line solutions, will transfer the legal headquarters within the next months from Solothurn, Switzerland, to German office location Nuremberg. By centralizing functions in Nuremberg, JUKI plans to form the organizational frame for strengthening market position and expand competitiveness as well as helping employees to innovate.
Jens Mirau, President JUKI Automation Systems Europe: „We see this step as an important investment to be able to respond to customer requests faster and to lower coordination efforts internally at the same time. Further investments in headcounts are planned at Nuremberg location in training, sales and technical departments as well as in IT infrastructure. For our customers there will be hardly any change as the familiar contact persons for technical services, MI and sales will still be available in Switzerland. We are looking forward to continue our good relationships with our customers without changes.”
Traditionally, the headquarters of JUKI Automation Systems is based at the Swiss location of Solothurn. Over the years, the German location in Nuremberg gained increasing importance, not least due to the fact that Switzerland is not a member of the European Union. Thus, Nuremberg office continually moved into the focus of all activities such as machine delivery to EMEA based customers in particular. Complete logistics with warehouse, technical services as well as, demo, trainings and administration centres are situated here.
