On 1st July 2017, a new company was incorporated under the umbrella of the AUMUND Group: AUMUND Group Field Service GmbH has its registered office in Rheinberg/Germany, and Erwin Last became its Managing Director. The company’s business is to carry out industrial installation services on behalf of the Group brands, AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH, SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH and SAMSON Materials Handling Ltd., but also for customers outside the AUMUND Group. In particular it will carry out and supervise installation and commissioning of machines as well as servicing, maintenance and repair work. Through this merger the AUMUND Group will optimise the range of site installation, equipment start-up and inspection services.
Erwin Last evaluates this corporate consolidation as a further step towards ensuring sustainable employment prospects for Rheinberg. “We will set a consistent standard for site services and commissioning over the whole of the AUMUND Group. This will bring a marked increase in efficiency and added value for the customer,” explains Erwin Last. The core team of the new AUMUND Group Field Service GmbH consists of 28 employees.
