Located in the Stuttgart Engineering Technology Park near Stuttgart University, the office opened its doors on August 15, 2013 with the purpose of providing local support to the region.
“Germany is a strong economic driver in Europe and a very important market for Bal Seal Engineering,” says Wayne Young, the company’s sales director for Europe, adding that medical, automotive, and energy are among the key market segments for Bal Seal in Germany. “Opening a Bal Seal office in this region is part of our expansion strategy.

Young notes that Bal Seal has already achieved significant sales growth in Europe, and that the opening of this office supports the company’s growing customer base.
