The business model for many suppliers, to produce in one location and supply their customers from that location, is outdated and the idea of delivering Western-European technology and premium products to (new) markets is too costly. Companies want their products to be produced in the significant continents for the local market; time-to-market, flexible supply chain, lower transportation costs and contribution to CO2 reduction are essential reasons.
Our locations in the Netherlands - with a design studio and production site, including a clean room and tool shop, are excellent locations of an outstanding level. We also have production sites across three continents (Europe, Asia and Northern-America), so we are in a high position to provide local-for-local production as much as possible. This advantage leads to increased efficiency, more flexibility and low(er) transportation costs. As a result - and due to global quality standards - our customers can benefit from the same excellent service levels and quality, no matter where they are situated.
The key to success
Our customers can be satisfied that we can operate from any location. We are using any technique. For any market. Even when times are unfavourable. Thanks to our international footprint, we can guarantee production, so the business can continue to keep operating. Key is to listen to the long-term needs of customers. Therefore we prepare our company for international expansion and flexibility. We already have production facilities in The Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, Mexico and China. Still, we remain alert to what is happening or is about to happen in the rest of the world. We also invest in multicultural management teams.
