EMCO is one of the top manufacturers in Europe

EMCO is one of the top manufacturers in Europe

The success story of this Austrian company, which was founded in 1947, started with the production of conventional lathes. EMCO, which in the meantime is part of the KUHN HOLDING, Austria-based heavy equipment distributor, has become one of Europe’s leading producers of machine tools and has production plants in Austria, Germany and Italy. With its extensive product portfolio, EMCO is a respected competence partner in the field of turning and milling.

The group of companies consists of an association of top European suppliers (EMCO, EMCO FAMUP, EMCO Magdeburg and EMCO MECOF) all of which come from the machine-tool industry. United under the common maxim of “Made in the Heart of Europe” they work on intelligent and innovative production solutions for the machining industry. The development and production of the machines takes place in Central Europe using exclusively European branded products and all selected manufacturers meet the highest standards in terms of quality, productivity and cost-effectiveness. Innovative products, high quality of workmanship, as well as appealing design are just some of the significant factors that have contributed to the unequivocal success of EMCO.

With its two areas of industry and training EMCO is pursuing a successful two-pillar business strategy:

The industry unit offers intelligent solutions for CNC turning and milling machining. The EMCO product range extends from conventional lathes and milling machines to CNC turning centers, vertical machining centers, to high-speed milling and boring machine centers. The area of automation – customer-specific solutions to further increase productivity – developed into an economically attractive business area of the Hallein site.

EMCO Industrial Training represents the second pillar of the EMCO business strategy. As the global market leader, EMCO has dominated this field for more than 40 years. Educational and training facilities all over the world rely on EMCO Industrial Training.

In line with rapid technical advances, requirements concerning the qualifications of employees are also continuously being raised. With its competence and many years of experience, EMCO offers its customers modular training concepts based on state-of-the-art technology and industrial requirements under the motto "From industry for industry". The product range extends from concept machines (turning and milling), which meet industrial standards, software and courseware to consulting services. Thus, the trainee and/or user can be prepared and specifically trained with the EMCO machines and training systems, which can be freely combined with each other, ensuring that the seamless transfer of know-how into the production of the companies succeeds.
