There’s so much happening – reason enough for a review.

Review of 2015

Review of 2015

These were the highlights of 2015:  We’ve expanded and have set out targets for the future too. And we were successfully represented at several exhibitions, showing our insulation solutions for tomorrow’s requirements.   

 

Agritechnica 2015

November saw us at Agritechnica in Hannover, the most important international exhibition for Agricultural Machinery. Our stand proved an effective platform for both presentation and communication, and together with the products shown, underlined our position as an innovator in this market sector.

 

Successful Debut at IAA Cars 2015

In September, with our own Tmax-Design stand, we exhibited for the first time at IAA Cars in Frankfurt, the world’s biggest automobile show. There was particular interest in the presentations of Integral-Insulation, SONETHERM and DryTec, as well as the chance to marvel at the technological and visual aspects of our Design Study „Engine Cover and Turbocharger“and the DryTec Spray demonstrator. We’re grateful for the many new contacts we were able to make with visiting technical specialists and decision-makers.

 

New Office in Italy

With the opening on 1st Feb. 2015 of a new Sales & Marketing Office in Northern Italy we have further expanded our global Sales network and continued our consistent policy of international growth and customer service. New staff in Milan and Turin will be serving our business customers in Southern Europe with a more local presence, and initially it is hoped to further exploit the Off-Highway, On-Highway and Automotive market sectors.


Expanded Production, increased Research & Development

Our US subsidiary Thermamax, Inc. in Aurora, IL relocated to a new, larger site. This means the company now has approx. 2600 m² available for the administration, production, and logistics functions.  This has been a necessary step to meet the growing requirements of the North American market, and in order to effectively support customers locally with sales, engineering and production needs.    

On the Research and Development front there has also been a lot going on. In February 2015 we completed the new R & D facilities in Mannheim with a near doubling of the available space. With an optimization of processes, all R & D facilities are integrated into a single location. For our customers that means increased flexibility, speed and efficiency in producing new products and processes, and in the execution of new projects.
