Focussing on customers around the world
Our installations and systems are developed in close co-operation with our customers utilising our products, which are exactly tailored to meet their needs.
Products to satisfy market requirements
We meet the requirements of global trends and develop sustainable solutions together with our customers for products and production processes – such as battery-driven container transport vehicles that produce zero exhaust gas emissions. In important growth-market countries, such as India and China, but also in South Africa, we have established teams of international development engineers who are focused on the market and customer requirements of their respective region.
International development teams
With our products, we are an acknowledged technology and innovation leader. To maintain our leading position, we place great emphasis on outstanding research and development. In recent years, we have increased our international R&D activities for optimum focus on our customers’ needs. Some 30 per cent of our development work is now conducted abroad. With our international development teams, we ensure that our products combine local expertise with European engineering to meet local market requirements.
