During a tour of the production, the assembly and the showroom as well as the subsequent conversation Dr. Weichel and Mr. Scherer received information on the company’s new focus and strategy. Mr. Keilmann and Mr. Chen explained to the visitors that in the future the company would increasingly concentrate on automation and high tech and that as part of the group’s strategy the segments welding, jeans and shoes would be expanded. „New products from these segments will be presented at industry trade shows in the US, Turkey and Asia in the coming weeks.
Markets where automation in combination with process reliability and increased outputs becomes more and more important,“ stated Robert Keilmann.
