Altmann is optimistic about 2023

The fact that this large number of orders could be processed so successfully was mainly due to the commitment of all employees, for which the management thanked the team at the annual meeting at the beginning of February. A look at the order situation for 2023 also allows the management and employees to start the new financial year with optimism.

Major order for 80 cranes

The crane manufacturer will be working at full capacity by early 2024. "We are pleased to have received several major orders," says Managing Director Achim Altmann.

The company from Albaching currently employs more than 50 people. At least five new employees will be recruited in 2023 to process the new orders. Three new apprentices are scheduled to start their mechatronics apprenticeship in September. Sabine Altmann: "We continue to be very active on our Instagram channel and hope to find suitable applicants who we can offer an attractive and future-proof apprenticeship position here in the east of Upper Bavaria.

Investment in a new turn-mill centre

In order to increase its own production depth and to be less dependent on suppliers, Altmann has made an investment in the mid six-figure range and purchased a DMG Mori, one of the most modern turn & mill machines on the market. "We are now able, for example, to manufacture gears ourselves exactly according to our quality requirements and can therefore even produce them more cheaply," says Robert Altmann.

Another part of the investments goes into the expansion of office space for employees in electrical planning and production. Five new jobs will be created on a gallery in the existing factory hall, so that the programmers and designers are "closer" to production. In the future, planners and those who carry out work in the workshop will benefit from short distances and better internal communication.


Altmann becomes more international

The trade fair appearance at Cleanzone last year contributed to Altmann Fördertechnik becoming more international and supplying cleanroom cranes to neighbouring European countries. "Even if our core business is still in Germany and Europe, the latest export deals even take us to Asia," says Robert Altmann with delight. His brother adds: "We are proud to be able to handle an increasing number of international orders and thus to consolidate our reputation as a high-quality crane supplier."
