AMETEK Germany, part of AMETEK Inc., is pleased to announce the inauguration of a new, state-of-the-art Customer Center of Excellence in Weiterstadt, Germany, that will provide enhanced support to its customers through in-person demonstrations of AMETEK innovations and solutions across major industries.

Service capabilities for AMETEK products will also be provided.
AMETEK Germany started its operations in 1973 in Meerbusch near Düsseldorf and continues to grow. In 2015, it opened the location in Weiterstadt, and since then, increasing customer demand has required an expansion to a larger facility.

During a private grand opening event held on January 12, AMETEK employees were on-hand to provide customers, distributors, and partners with dynamic and interactive technology demonstrations. Several members of AMETEK’s executive leadership team were also present to welcome guests, including Mikael Näsström, Vice President, Commercial Excellence; Dr. Chris Maetzig, Vice President and General Manager of AMETEK’s Ultra Precision Technology Division; Stefano Milani, Division Vice President, AMETEK Europe & Brazil; Michael Privik, Division Vice President and Business Unit Manager, SPECTRO; as well as other business leaders from across the company.
