After takeover: MAXXOM Automation on the rise

The merger with Pollmann has strengthened the company. Due to the capacity expansion, major international projects can now also be handled.


Since the beginning of the year 2022, MAXXOM Automation GmbH, whose core competence lies in the construction of innovative and sustainable automation systems, has been part of the Pollmann Group. A lot has happened since then: Among other things, the Pollmann automation technology was successfully integrated into MAXXOM GmbH, ensuring a uniform external appearance. Now it is time for a first résumé, which is extremely positive: "The takeover can definitely be classified as a success," says MAXXOM Managing Director Stefan Pollmann.

Two locations, one team

MAXXOM Automation GmbH operates at two locations: 37 employees work at the Pollmann headquarters in Karlstein, and 17 at the MAXXOM headquarters in Oberhofen am Irrsee. The fact that there has been no fluctuation in the Upper Austrian team despite the change of ownership speaks for itself. Stefan Pollmann, who is part of the 5th generation in the family business, appreciates the gain in know-how: "The takeover has strengthened our group of companies with 17 fresh minds. This opens up new perspectives, and we are making use of them."

In keeping with Pollmann's sustainability strategy, the team is proactively working to permanently increase the efficiency of its machinery. For example, automation systems are increasingly being equipped with electric instead of pneumatic drives, which increases efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions.

Capacities for major international projects

Of course, MAXXOM is and will remain Pollmann's group supplier for automation technology, but in order to continue growing, the focus is strongly on external customers. "We have already been able to successfully acquire the first orders for customers outside the Pollmann Group. In addition, we were able to land major projects that MAXXOM would not have been able to handle before the takeover," reports the managing director.

The automation systems are used in the automotive, electrical, consumer goods and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in medical technology. In addition, MAXXOM is a sales partner for Schmidt Technology press systems, RNA feeding technology, Friedrich riveting machines and Vermes Microdispensing Solutions.

Pollmann production as MAXXOM showroom

Due to the positive developments, an expansion concept is in the works for the Oberhofen plant. In Karlstein, the area for automation technology has already been tripled. The fact that the automation systems are built where Pollmann series production also takes place is a major advantage: "We have, so to speak, a showroom in the house." During a tour of Pollmann's production, potential customers can get a first-hand impression of a wide variety of automation systems, which beats out any theoretical presentation.

As part of the Pollmann Group, the automation partner knows what is important in series production. In addition, Pollmann Werkzeugbau GmbH as a tool shop offers the possibility of also covering tool components in-house. This is a real unique selling point.
