With the new location Forschner Electrical & Mechanical Systems Kunshan Co., Ltd, Forschner is represented in the Asian market for the first time.
The additional manufacturing site in Mexico established in 2014 is running at full speed, production has started as planned and is now being successively expanded. Forschner's proximity to the important NAFTA region is thus now also given in spatial terms. In addition, the expanded production capacities further increase flexibility and responsiveness.
At the EVS30 trade fair – Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition – in Stuttgart in October, Forschner presented its new 'e-mobility' business unit. At the centre of it all: an attention-grabbing clip about the friendly robot PiDU which congenially communicates the products and services of Forschner. You can see the clip above … and now we move on to a short trade fair review …

Ready? Go! – Eugen Forschner GmbH participated in the past 'Jobs for Future' in Villingen-Schwenningen with its trade fair stand under this slogan.
Conveying a real impression of the largest employer in the area and getting into a discussion: that was the aim of this invitation to Helmut Götz, the newly appointed mayor of Mahlstetten, to Forschner PTM GmbH. In April, Dr Gert Forschner, managing director of the corporate group, and Beyti Baran, managing director of Forschner PTM GmbH, welcomed the new town hall chief to the high-precision company on Griesstraße.
For Forschner, Jobs for Future 2016 in Villingen-Schwenningen was a complete success! With a compact – yet consequently even more attractive – trade fair presence, we succeeded in obtaining a large number of new contacts and enthusing many talented junior staff about our company and our products.
After the first participation in 2015, Forschner will be present once again at this year's Jobs for Future at the exhibition centre in Villingen-Schwenningen. With the slogan 'pole positions', this year's appearance takes a racing theme. Also appearing on Friday 11 March from 2 p.m. is the former ski jumper and current racing driver Sven Hannawald.
