The focus is on increasing the assemblies’ efficiency, performance and dependability.

Our customers will also benefit greatly.”

The previous owners are the managing directors of ECI-Distribution/PowerUp, Eugen Laner, Thomas Achrainer and Norbert Rupprechter, their silent partners, as well as ECI Manufacturing and PGES GmbH.
