“A lot has changed in the past 65 years,” said managing director Erich Sennebogen.
“It is not just the machines that have kept getting bigger. Our portfolio is constantly growing and we always need to be thinking about future developments. At the same time, economic conditions are changing.
“Our markets in the material handling and crane sectors have evolved. The business areas have become more diverse and the requirements our customers have with regard to quality products are constantly increasing.”
