White goods such as washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, and ovens as well as appliances like coffee makers, kettles, and mixers are made of a wide variety of plastic parts and assemblies. These fall under the appliances market category at Greiner Assistec, which not only produces the parts but assembles and finishes them as well if desired. Greiner Assistec works especially closely with its customers in this category, with several locations in eastern Europe ensuring that we are in close proximity to numerous producers.

Greiner Assistec has produced a number of milk frothing systems, which serve as a perfect example of our services in the appliances category. These systems stand out not only thanks to their look, but also because they are simple to use and particularly easy to clean.
Various production technologies – including injection molding, silicone injection molding, injection stretch blow molding, and thermoforming – are combined during production at a number of locations. The various parts are then brought together to form an assembly. Greiner Assistec also takes care of the decorating processes such as printing, laser engraving, and labeling. This means the entire assembly can be supplied by a single source.
