maxon motor, the provider of DC motors and drive systems, is constantly expanding its global network in order to be able to react to the needs of its customers faster and more flexibly. The Swiss company currently has more than 2,000 employees at four production sites and in 14 sales companies worldwide.

Now maxon motor is strengthening its activity in France as well. On October 1, 2014, the drive specialist will take over the motor business of long-time sales partner mdp sas. Under the same name, mdp will in future operate as the new maxon sales company in France. The current employees will remain with the company as well as the long-time and experienced managing director, Alain Pontille.

This step will bring maxon motor even closer to its customers in France and help the company provide its French customers with expert consultation tailored to their specific needs. The customers profit from the same product range as before and from the vast experience of the maxon engineers in the fields of industrial automation, robotics and medical technology. Many of the French companies that are global leaders in these fields already count on maxon products.
