Founded in 1994, HandlingTech Automations-Systeme GmbH, a company of the Hutzel Group, is a medium-sized company that specializes in the development and production of automation systems. From 2014, the company no longer operates under "Waldmann & Weigl GmbH" but under "HandlingTech Automation Systeme GmbH".
