(Elgin, IL – June, 2018) Today, success in the field of sheet metal processing means manufacturing products quickly, economically, and in consistently high quality.

In order to serve growing customer demands in the field of automation even more comprehensively in the future, Bystronic is acquiring 70 percent of the shares of Antil S.p.A.
