Munich, Feb 16, 2017
Siemens is giving its mechanical drives unit (Mechanical Drives, MD) a new setup that will enable the business to operate more efficiently and flexibly in implementing its growth plans in a competitive environment. MD's market, which is dominated by medium-sized companies, is currently characterized by weak growth, increasing competition from the Asian region and overcapacities, with correspondingly high price pressure. To achieve greater room to maneuver and intensify its business-specific orientation, the unit is to be managed in the future as a separate company under the Siemens umbrella.
