Excellence in Production 2018 – OECHSLER awarded as finalist in the "Toolmaking of the Year" competition

As part of the "Excellence in Production" competition, every year the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT and the WZL Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering at RWTH Aachen University work together with an expert jury to determine the best “Tool- and Mold-making Companies in German-speaking Countries” (http://www.excellence-in-production.de/de/excellence-in-production/).

More than 300 companies had participated in 2018. On the basis of a detailed comparison, the ten jurors from industry, politics and science selected the finalists, the category winners (in-house / external toolmakers, less than / more than 50 employees) and the overall winner.

We are proud to announce that OECHSLER has been awarded as a finalist in the category for Inhouse Toolmaker with more than 50 employees: Interner WZB mit über 50 Mitarbeitern. This shows that OECHSLER is among the best toolmakers in the German-speaking world.

With this in mind, we would also like to thank all who have contributed to this extraordinary award!
