Investments for guaranteeing the future


Current figures from VDW show that orders taken by the German machine tool industry fell by up to 20 per cent in the second quarter 2012 compared to the second quarter 2011. The slowing of economic activity in the branch both at home and abroad is being observed closely by the KOMET GROUP. “As a consequence of the current dip in the economy we have managed to continue to grow compared with last year but will not be able to achieve the growth targets we had originally set,” Matthias Heinz, Director of the KOMET GROUP, reports.

Despite the negative economic trend, the KOMET GROUP will continue its course in the months to come and invest more than 10 per cent of its turnover in cutting-edge machines and equipment.
“Our main priority is to expand our leading position in terms of both technology and innovation in order to achieve a further increase in productivity, thus securing jobs in the long term,” Dr. Christof Bönsch, Director of the KOMET GROUP, adds. The company is looking moderately optimistically to the future and relying on positive long-term market development.

The KOMET GROUP is underlining its leading position in the field of technology and innovation once again at the AMB 2012, where the company is presenting new and pioneering products and ideas designed to optimise day-to-day production in terms of sustainability and efficiency.
“At the AMB, we will be presenting numerous new products from the drilling, reaming, threading, coating and process monitoring ranges which will provide sustainable impulses through the integration of modern technologies,” Bönsch promises.

The AMB booth concept is as simple as it is convincing:
very close to the process with a focus on the Plus for customers. “The Plus for customers is our distinguishing feature and success factor at the same time,” Bönsch and Heinz reveal. With a fair presentation aligned to customer processes, the KOMET GROUP is highlighting not only its outstanding technical product solutions but also its powerful range of services and added value for customers.
