UNITED GRINDING Opens Subsidiary in Southeast Asia

The UNITED GRINDING Group strengthens its Southeast Asian footprint and establishes a subsidiary in Singapore.


UNITED GRINDING Asia Pacific (UGAP) Pte. Ltd. is the new group subsidiary for UNITED GRINDING Group (UGG). UGG has had a presence in Southeast Asia for many years thanks to representatives and the WALTER EWAG Asia Pacific subsidiary. This new group strengthens the UNITED GRINDING’s presence in the region with grinding, eroding, laser and measuring machines.

"Strategically, Southeast Asia is a vital region for us. Establishing a UNITED GRINDING subsidiary was a logical step to further our activities in the region," said Stephan Nell, CEO of the UNITED GRINDING Group.

The potential is high, and the number of customers is continuously increasing. "Proximity to our customers has always been important to us to ensure fast and effective support," added Nell. “The ability to offer our bundled technology and application know-how from a single subsidiary will bring many advantages to customers.”

Michael Schmid, CEO of the new UNITED GRINDING branch and already responsible for the Southeast Asian business of the WALTER and EWAG brands for more than 20 years, said: "It’s exciting news. We can bundle the strength of our powerful team in the joint group subsidiary and serve our customers even better. In the future, we will offer all three group technologies (surface and profile grinding, cylindrical grinding, tool grinding) under one roof. I am convinced that bundling and intensifying our activities in this region is a win-win for all parties involved."
