Engineering Success Stories

SAUERESSIG Engineering supports international customers in the field of special machine construction and battery technology throughout the entire development process and realizes individual solutions that are unique worldwide.

Significant for our machines manufactured in Vreden, Germany, are the high quality and – above all – the optimal orientation to individual customer requirements.

Discover the milestones of our Engineering success stories:

  • Upgrading and Expansion of the Competence Center. Comprehensive testing and piloting options – the link between the lab and large-scale production.
