About P.C.S. Precision Works Germany GmbH

P.C.S. Precision Works Germany GmbH was an internationally operating automotive supplier headquartered in Cunewalde, Saxony, Germany. Specialising in the mechanical processing of vehicle components and modules, P.C.S. used state-of-the-art production and manufacturing techniques for both small and large series. The company’s core products included engine and transmission parts supplied to well-known car manufacturers and other suppliers. Despite its expertise and global network, the company has become insolvent.

According to the insolvency administrator, the company’s economic difficulties were multifactorial. Structural changes in the automotive industry, revenue losses due to the Corona pandemic, supply chain issues, and rising energy costs were significant factors The withdrawal of a major order from an automotive corporation was the final blow, compelling the company to file for insolvency in April 2023. The closure of the P.C.S. plant marks a sad chapter for the region and, in particular, for the last 150 employees.

The role of Surplex in plant closure

In the context of plant closures, the role of specialists such as Surplex becomes pertinent. The company supports insolvency administrators in the efficient liquidation of businesses. Its expertise in organisation and worldwide distribution will help to achieve an optimal sales value for P.C.S.’s high-quality machinery, thereby releasing budgets for other urgent needs. After the purchasers have collected their machines and items from the factory, or they have been dispatched, Surplex will hand over the empty building to the owner, swept clean. Although the economic site in the municipality of Cunewalde has seen positive development, the situation remains challenging. Nevertheless, there is optimism for the future establishment of new business areas on the factory site.
