1zu1 Prototypes will take over the business of the bankrupt company W&W Plastic GmbH

As of 1 September, 1zu1 Prototypes will take over the business of W&W Plastic GmbH, which filed for bankruptcy on Monday. Production will continue at the existing premises of W&W Plastic GmbH in Dornbirn. The company’s twelve employees will be given the opportunity to move to 1zu1 Prototypes. The company’s machines and warehouses will be purchased by 1zu1.

W&W Plastic GmbH produces plastic parts via injection molding at its location on the Haldengasse in Dornbirn. The company has specialist expertise in printing and embossing plastic and metal parts and other materials, as well as dyeing plastic parts.

Managing Director of 1zu1 Prototypes, Hannes Hämmerle, sees great synergies here: “These services will enable us to expand our range of printing and embossing services. The existing customers of 1zu1 Prototypes will benefit from this. We can also continue to supply the customers of W&W Plastic almost without interruption.”

Machines and warehouses acquired

1zu1 Prototypes will purchase machines and warehouses from among its insolvent competitor’s assets. All twelve of the company’s employees have received an offer to move to 1zu1 Prototypes. The previous production site of W&W Plastic is being rented to ensure production continues seamlessly.

1zu1 Prototypes is one of Europe's leading providers of 3D printing, rapid prototyping and rapid tooling. Its 160 employees achieved sales of around 17 million euros last year. In injection molding, the high-tech company offers production of small series up to a maximum of 100,000 units. To achieve this, 1zu1 uses injection-molding tools made from aluminum, which can be manufactured very quickly and economically. For almost two years, 1zu1 has also been producing injection-molded parts in its cleanroom – for example, for medical technology applications.
