Prima Power is pleased to announce the official opening of its new Technology Center in Neufahrn, near Munich.
The new location is in the heart of the D-A-CH area. As a result, Prima Power is now able to better serve the entire German-speaking market and to be much closer to the regions where its machines are already in use or where the group see the highest growth potential.
Paolo Musante, Prima Power GmbH Managing Director states: „The new Technology Center will serve as a center of excellence and will have a strong focus on customer satisfaction, since from this location we can offer our customers a highly efficient support, especially for the industrial areas of Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Munich, as an international transport hub, is excellently connected to the European railway and motorway network and has the second largest airport in Germany. This is very important for us as a globally active company, especially as it means we can now be reached relatively quickly and easily for our customers from other European countries as well.“
