Company profile

For more than 40 years EWIKON has been focusing on the development and manufacturing of high performance hot runner technology. We are proud to see that this dedication to our job continuously leads to benchmark-setting innovations in the injection moulding industry and thus contributes to our customers’ success.  

EWIKON is an owner-managed independent company with clear structures. These are ideal preconditions for a value-based and strictly customer-oriented company policy.

Their qualifications, skills and commitment make EWIKON a trusted partner for the global injection moulding industry.
