On 1 July this year, Junget A/S became elumatec's new sales partner in Denmark. The international supplier and full service provider is based in Hinnerup, a small town north of Aarhus, and employs 75 people. Junget's core business is the distribution of tools and machines for the wood, metal and plastics processing industries, including services such as consultation, customs clearance, machine installation and technical support, all from a single source. "For many years we have supplied window and door manufacturers in Denmark, so we are delighted that we can now support our many customers in this market segment with elumatec machines for aluminium and PVC profiling," says Poul Thøgersen, CEO of Junget.

Higher revenue figures and increasing sales of profile machining centres are the current results of the still ongoing reorganization at elumatec South Africa. The two subsidiaries in Johannesburg and Cape Town have been consolidated to form a single main office in Cape Town. The two branch offices in Johannesburg and Durban are now concentrating exclusively on sales and service in the respective regions. "The construction boom under way here is having a positive effect on our business development," says Rudi Nel, the new director of elumatec South Africa in Cape Town after the retirement of Mr. Allan Freely. The additional benefits are the cost savings resulting from the centralization of the administration as well as in logistics due to the favourable harbour location and the shorter transportation routes. A newly implemented ERP system has also improved the control of business operations. Supplementary intensive training of sales representatives and targeted customer care are already reaping additional successes. The reorganization is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.

In 2016, elumatec invested a single-digit figure in the millions to purchase new production technologies. Amongst other things, a horizontal machining centre and a cylindrical grinder were acquired, thereby modernizing the mechanical production facilities at headquarters in Mühlacker. The new machines will be used for producing components for motors, profile machining centres, saws and precision parts. The primary focus of the optimization is increased efficiency, productivity and flexibility. These objectives are to be reached through more automation, powerful technologies and enhanced networking between production processes in keeping with the concept of Industry 4.0. elumatec invests in up-to-date machines on a regular basis. In the final analysis, the firm possesses a very large vertical range of manufacture - the foundation for quality products "made by elumatec."

The elumatec group was able to improve their very good net asset position once again in 2016 and attained an equity ratio of 84.1% (compared to 76% last year). Likewise, the earnings performance was also improved by 3% to 124.5 million euros, primarily due to an increase in revenues. This is due in great measure to the new machine models SBZ 122 and SBZ 628 and a positive turnover development in the After Sales area. From a geographical viewpoint, business operations in the USA and Southern Europe were very successful. A continued increase in revenues is expected for the year 2017, especially in light of the high demand for elumatec machines in Asia and Europe.
