(October 8, 2009) – Today Emuge Corp., a leading manufacturer of high-performance cutting tools and precision workholding solutions, announced they are the exclusive North American agent for The HOHENSTEIN Company, one of Germany’s leading companies for design and production of work piece clamping fixtures. This arrangement will combine reliable high-quality, special purpose work piece clamping fixtures from HOHENSTEIN with Emuge’s application expertise in demanding workholding and tooling solutions.
“By adding the specialized clamping fixtures from HOHENSTEIN to our lines, we further demonstrate our commitment to our customers to fulfill their unique application requirements,” commented Mr. Peter Matysiak, President of Emuge Corp. “The fixtures are a natural addition, as our Precision Workholding Department specializes in customized solutions where accuracy and repeatability play a major role.”
