ARO steps up production another notch
Sales of ARO transformers and motors at an all-time high
With more than 800 motors and 950 transformers regularly produced each month and with outputs expected to grow further into the foreseeable future, ARO has stepped up production at its Montval-sur-Loir manufacturing facility.
In 2016, ARO increased its production capacity of motors by 50% but this proved insufficient and since February this year, ARO has been operating a double shift system but with more to come, a third shift is now in the pipeline for later this summer.
Jean Yves David, President ARO France:
“Our success is driven by a strong and steadily increasing customer demand for ARO guns, as well as large component orders for Daimler and BMW. Obviously the performance, reliability, and competitiveness of our components are key factors; in particular, our popular water-cooled motor with optional force sensor which is unique to ARO”.
ARO’s resistance welding products and expertise are enjoyed by many of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers; and with benefits such as a compact construction and lower weight, ARO transformers offer outstanding performance setting a new benchmark in design.
ARO is widely regarded as the world leader in resistance welding to the automotive and other industries. The ARO group is headquartered near Le Mans, in France with regional offices in the Americas, Europe, China and Asia. The company employs over 500 people and was founded in 1949, becoming part of the German engineering group IWKA, until acquired by Langley Holdings plc, the engineering group owned by British industrialist, Tony Langley.
