Karle + Jung, the toolmaking specialist from Ötigheim, wants to exploit growth opportunities in the market as it moves forward with a new shareholder structure and an extended management team. The previous sole shareholder, Dieffenbacher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau from Eppingen, will remain as a minority shareholder.
“The goal is to engage with customer needs more quickly, more effectively and with greater focus on processes. That’s why we have developed a new strategy together with Dieffenbacher,” explains Matthias Jung, Managing Director and main shareholder of Karle + Jung. “Dieffenbacher will continue to accompany and support us. This is an important sign for our employees and customers,” adds Billy Ege, Commercial Director at Karle + Jung.
Background: Karle + Jung was taken over by the machine and plant manufacturer Dieffenbacher in 1997. Dieffenbacher needed a specialist to produce tools for metal presses for the rapidly growing metal-forming business segment. Since then, Dieffenbacher has refocused on the reforming of glass and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics.
“Karle + Jung and Dieffenbacher have worked together successfully, amicably and with confidence for 20 years, for which we are very proud and grateful,” says Matthias Jung. “With our new organizational structure, we will be even better equipped to meet the new challenges of the market.” Matthias concluded.
