The established German mechanical engineering company Neuenhauser Maschinenbau GmbH has become a strategic partner of Plasmawerk Hamburg – supplier of corona and plasma systems – with retroactive effect from 1 July 2018. Neuenhauser acquires a minority stake in the company.

Plasmawerk Hamburg with its new technologies FLAIR and Ceremo claims to have brought about a radical change in the pretreatment of web-shaped materials. Both innovations have been tested in practical applications and have been received with great interest in the market. In order to meet the growing demand with good and punctual quality, but still be able to meet customer requirements flexibly at the highest level, Neuenhauser is participating in PWH. PWH's innovative systems had already been manufactured exclusively at Neuenhauser in recent years.

PWH, founded in 2009 with the aim of developing and establishing innovative plasma technologies in the surface treatment market, recently presented several pioneering solutions after years of intensive development and implementation of innovative solutions in the field of surface functionalisation of web-like material. The world's first systems were equipped with the technologies and further developed according to customer requirements. After this phase of product innovation, PWH is now strengthening its position through a valuable partner to ensure delivery capability in a market with high demand. The cooperation between Neuenhauser and PWH is said to have been very successful for years, and the processes are well coordinated and optimised.
