The global economy is looking for the recipe for success of the "German Mittelstand". Breyer as a developer and manufacturer of machines for plastics processing is a prime example of a successful specialist. Profound know-how, technological competence and innovative strength are among the foundations of success. A not inconsiderable part of the know-how is efficient product data management. Breyer has been working with CIM Database as a PDM platform since 2002 and relies on efficient support in the development of mechatronic products.
