May - 2015
Tuesday 5th May marked the official opening of the new Bauer production facility at the company headquarters in Esslingen. During the day, guests heard from Bauer’s M.D. as well as the Lord Mayor of Esslingen and CEO of Altra Industrial Motion, Bauer’s parent company. Guests heard how the facility will act as the flagship for Bauer’s new production concept, which increases the flexibility of the company’s ability to deliver engineered solutions for all applications on extremely short lead times.
It’s a phrase that can send chills down the spine of even the most hardened maintenance worker. The production line is down... a key part needs to be replaced to get the line back up. Wonder of wonders, you find the label on the problem product is still intact and the part number is actually legible.
