Essemtec AG experiences volume turnover increase
Press release, April 23, 2009
After a difficult year's beginning Essemtec AG can look towards the 2009 spring trade optimistically. In addition to newly introduced products, such as the placing machines CSM7200 and the PANFLEX2, other marketing operations took effect and have led to a slowly increasing volume in turnover.
“In comparison to February 2009, we have recorded an increase in turnover of more than 15% for March 2009,”stated Martin Ziehbrunner, CEO of the Essemtec AG. It is clear for the Swiss mechanical engineers that such increases in the mechanical engineering are not common regarding the present economic situation. That’s why one looks into the future with optimism.
“We think that the bottom as such has been reached for us. In the next weeks and months we expect a continual but slow increase in the orders,” Martin Ziehbrunner explained the optimistic outlook. Numerous projects are at the customers' side and have been rescheduled again and again in the past months. With the slowly increasing economic activities in particular sectors, these projects have been changed into orders now.
Not only additional performances, the upgrade of existing machine outfits and special schemes generate an increase in turnover, but also the sale of complete turnkey-solutions. “All from one source” is for many customers the deciding argument for purchasing. Therefore, complete process solutions can be sold in Europe and Asia during the first months, too.
“Just the possibility to be able to offer all from one source has ensured us sales in the past months. Moreover, we push further developments. We are a strong partner for our customers, sales partners and sub-suppliers, also in economic difficult times and this is felt and noticed by our partners day by day. It is especially important for our customers to have a supplier at their side that is able to guarantee service and support in the future as well. We can offer that, and this is the reason for the success of Essemtec AG,” summarized Martin Ziehbrunner.
