A change in market requirements on the one hand and the expansion of the company’s own product portfolio on the other have led to the decision to wind up the site in Altendorf, Switzerland, and hand over sales and service activities to Hans Wegmüller AG.
Bernhard Richter-Schützeneder, Hatz General Sales and Marketing Manager: “With the new H series, we brought a new generation of electronically controlled, liquid-cooled engines to market-readiness. Coping with this surge in interest would have meant extensive restructuring in terms of service in our Swiss branch, and moreover, having to address a completely new clientele. The danger of such expenditure not corresponding with the market radius of the location would have been relatively great.”
The responsible persons at Hatz were able to recruit their partner of choice in the shape of HWAG. As HWAG previously concentrated primarily on engines with a displacement of more than three litres, the new partnership with Hatz offers the perfect supplement.
