The Felder Group and the EMC srl have been working together successfully for over two decades. The two companies have now reached an agreement on a deeper technology partnership. The Felder Group has acquired a majority share in EMC srl and thus integrated EMC into the corporate group.
The special focus here lies in the area of sanding technology. The Felder Group and EMC offer cutting-edge, end-to-end sanding solutions for all areas of the secondary woodworking industry. From entry-level machines to individual innovation solutions and high-end products, the partnership with Felder can cover the customer’s entire process chain within the sanding technology sector. The second major application area of EMC’s sanding technology is metalworking, which is comprehensively represented in EMC’s machine programme.
The scope of the Felder Group’s product portfolio has significantly expanded in recent years, and individual customer requirements as well as special projects are also increasingly coming to the fore. Simultaneously, high demand from different markets and growth areas requires a joint bundling of research and development as well as production forces.
„As a full-range provider in the field of secondary woodworking, the further development and integration of EMC into the Felder Group was the logical and most forward-looking step. With EMC, we have gained an innovative technology partner who has all the technological and soft-skills to cover the process chain in the sanding segment.“ Tamara Felder, Chief Marketing Officer Felder Group.
The production sites in Hall in Tirol and in Imola will be retained in their entirety. The research and development as well as the production facilities in Imola will remain in place and will be expanded subsequently. International distribution and service for woodworking in the field of sanding technology will be taken over largely by the Felder Group. The existing sales structures of Felder and EMC will remain in place.
„The team at EMC is very excited about the merger with the Felder Group and the focus that is being placed on sanding technology. An unique opportunity to demonstrate our expertise and innovative strength and to be able to serve many customers and markets to the fullest extent.“ Ivano Coveri, CEO of EMC.
