Prettl Manufacturing and RavenTech enter into a joint venture
PR Appliance Technologies: not just a components and systems manufacturer
Prettl Manufacturing is entering into a joint venture with RavenTech GmbH, based in Nuremberg, Germany. The resulting company, PR Appliance Technologies S.A. de C.V. headquartered in Querétaro, Mexico, will operate as a development partner for leading manufacturers in the household appliances industry.
The specialist knowledge that RavenTech GmbH will bring to the joint venture, as a provider of product development services, is an ideal complement to Prettl's global expertise in production using plastics. Together we shall offer the customer a broader spectrum of services with innovative concepts", explained Carlos Barroso, who is representing Prettl in PR Appliance Technologies, describing the purpose of the new company. The aim of PR Appliance Technologies is to work with customers to develop components and systems for white goods, such as dishwashers, fridges, washing machines and driers, that are future-proof, and to present itself in the market as a strong partner for OEMs. Other benefits and synergies will result from the experience gained by the two parent companies in the North and South American market over many years.
Automotive, Appliance Solutions, Electronics, Energy and ProSys are the 5 business areas of the Prettl group. Operated by Prettl Produktions Holding GmbH, Prettl Beteiligungs Holding GmbH and the Prettl Privatstiftung (private foundation), the successful, internationally active group, with more than 9,500 employees at more than 35 locations in more than 25 countries, is organised as a network of completely independent companies. The secret recipe of these autonomous companies: the benefits of maximum corporate freedom, bringing with it the ability to define their own strategies, customers and markets.
The companies are in turn united in the green philosophy promoted by Prettl, which is based on the commercial success it has achieved and involves not only its employees and technology, but also its products. For Prettl, simply securing the future is not enough, the goal is also to shape it.
RavenTech operates worldwide as a development partner in the household appliances industry.
