Austrian moldmaker Haidlmair GmbH is looking to set up manufacturing in the U.S. Said CEO Mario Haidlmair, “If somebody is interested in partnering with us, we would be pleased to learn more.” Haidlmair is a family-owned firm started in 1979 and grown to over $50 million annual revenue. Besides large bins, it is strong in automotive, large appliances, and technical parts, but its particular specialties are beverage crates and pallets. The company currently has an office for sales, service, and mold repair in Lake Geneva, Wis., and a second service center in Phoenix, Ariz.
