As managing director Mark Hellweg says, "We urgently need the extra space to accelerate handling of the large volume of orders which we have won since K2019 where our Smart Control machine controller was a major hit. We have also been seeing a trend toward large and complex machines. In future, we will be able to assemble and test these in our own facilities and so ensure trouble-free commissioning on our customers' premises."
Despite the coronavirus crisis, Hellweg's economic future looks very rosy. "2019 saw us achieve the highest sales figures in the company's history", explains Hellweg. "So expansion had already been on the cards for some time. Of course, the pace of development has slackened off during lockdown, but if things continue at their present level we will be able to celebrate record results at the end of this year too."
