Kuhne GmbH has opened a branch office in South Bend, Ind., giving its subsidiary, Kuhne Maschinenbau, a physical presence in the U.S. after decades of serving North America with sales representatives, 

The group's equipment manufactures production lines for windable and stackable sheet and blown film, including conventional, water-quench and triple-bubble lines. 

The family-owned business also retrofits extruders, controls, feed blocks and dies, including equipment from other suppliers. 

Kuhne's medium-size machine lines are built for the packaging, medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, energy, construction and automotive sectors. 

For its U.S. office, Kuhne hired three local sales managers and appointed a service technician, who is being trained in Germany before moving to South Bend.
