Few know that many of the market-leading products we have around us are not made by the product owners. “One objection we often encounter is that a product is too advanced to be put into production, but the BMW X3 is an example of a product that has been put into production with brilliant results,” says Axel Herz, conveying that UFAB is equipped and ready for similar challenges.
The hidden experts of UFAB
“Most people who buy a BMW X3 have no idea that it is not built by the company itself,” explains Axel Herz, sales manager at UFAB. The $360,000 sports car is actually assembled by Magna Steyr, a contract manufacturer that builds cars for several other automakers, including Daimler Chrysler (Auburn Hills, MI) and General Motors Corp. In 2005, the company assembled more than 100,000 X3s for BMW.

Similarly, UFAB is a systems provider and contract manufacturer delivering world-class solutions to everything from start-ups to global corporations. Their brand promise “always improve” is the company’s guiding principle and part of the DNA of the business. For its 70 employees, no idea is impossible to industrialize. “Sometimes we need to find alternative solutions, but there is always a solution,” explains Axel Herz. “Like Magna Steyr, we love challenges and are specialists in advanced assembly.”

“At UFAB, we are there every step of the way, from idea to installation, and on to service and renovation. We have the ability to lift your idea theoretically thanks to our skilled assembly technicians and product developers, but we also have the capacity at the plant itself to lift up to 20 tonnes practically.”– Axel Herz
