Switzerland-basedMaag (U.S. office in Charlotte, N.C.) has purchased Ettlinger Kunststoffmaschinen GmbH of Germany (U.S. office in Tyrone, Ga.). The move expands Maag’s position in melt-filtration products, particularly for recycling. The two companies will continue to operate under their existing brand names.
 

Ettlinger produces melt filters for extrusion and injection machines. It also builds high-tonnage, large-shot injection machines for pallets, pipe fittings, and manhole covers. Maag officials believe there is a potential to grow Ettlinger’s injection molding machinery business under new ownership.
